Nearly six years ago, Judy received the diagnosis of having the Alzheimer's Disease. The neurologist, extremely competant and selfassured left no room for doubt. The only option given to us was to return in three months for a follow up and then we were kindly shown the door. This is the most common outcommon for folks given this assessment. After Googling for weeks every bit of information available on Alzheimer's Diagnosis and prognosis, and reaching out to anyone and everyone who might know anything about how we could deal with this, we came upon Azheimer's Family Support of Cape Cod. Their response was remarkable: visiting us at home and giving us the confidence to to live with this disease as fully as possible; providing an opportunity to meet others in the same circumstances; and to identify other resources of support. Judy is a strong individual: a former principle of the Lincoln Middle School, mother and grandmother, runner in the Boston Marathon, active in book groups, and engaged in her community. In spite of the relentless nature and the debilitating effects of this disease , she continues to laugh and smile, and displays a caring and generous spirit. Without the thoughful support we received from AFSC, we would have been lost. Their knowledge and experience has been priceless.
