Alzheimer’s: The Quiet Disease

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

**Editor’s Note: This is the first of a five-part series recognizing Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. The series will highlight what Alzheimer’s is and how it effects a person. Along with a real account of a person affected by Alzheimer’s, information will also be given by a neurologist in Hastings and the staff and administration at the Sutton Community Home.**

It begins small: Forgetting keys. Not being able to put a name to a face. Then it begins to grow: Forgetting directions to a familiar area. Forgetting to get dressed. Not knowing what day it is or even the month. Then it consumes: Not recognizing your family and friends. Never being able to remember someone new. Forgetting parts about your own life.
