Miami, Fla.
Living with Alzheimer's: 9 years

My life has changed completely because of Alzheimer's. I used to work for a nonprofit organization helping clients to get jobs. I was having lots of fun doing that particular job. I was very busy. But I started to have problems with driving; I became disoriented.

My family has been very supportive of me; they look after my well-being. The best of all is that they care about me – and it shows. I'm very blessed to have the family that I have.
