Remembering Yesterday

These are the haunting photos of Alzheimer’s patients who see only their younger selves in the mirror. My grandfather passed away w/ Alzheimer’s in 2009. For years we watched his slow deterioration with the disease. These photos touched my heart.  Thank you Tom Hussey for creating these touching photos.

Alzheimer’s is a disease that attacks the brain. It is the most common form of dementia.

Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life.
