Happy holidays again from the HABIT Team! This week I came across this wonderful story written by a woman living with early Alzheimer's disease. I really wanted to share it with our group because she describes her diagnosis journey, which included an initial diagnosis of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and then an eventual diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). She describes the challenges of living with MCI/mild AD and the help she's beginning to accept, but she also describes all the joys she continues to experience including around the holiday. The writer, LuPita Gutierrez-Parker, describes her current involvement in the Alzheimer's Association Early Stage Advisory Group, which aims to help advise the Alzheimer's Association on early stage issues so that they might provide the most appropriate services and raise awareness for those living with MCI or early stage disease. I hope you will enjoy her story as much as I did.
