When Susan Isaacs’ husband Howard was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease at age 67, he became one of the 564,000 people currently living with dementia in Canada.
But like each of these men and women Howard is more than a number.
Once diagnosed, Susan and Howard connected right away to the Alzheimer Society London and Middlesex (ASLM). By using every service available to them, they moved from sadness and fear to waking up each day ready for the challenges that lie ahead. As Susan puts it, “we still have a lot of living to do”.
