Angie Day

THE STORY:

~~Hey Guys!!


My name is Angie Day! I am a wife, a mommy to 3 super cute pups, a hotel sales manager, and much much more....

My Grandma has been a head nurse on the Alzheimer's floor of the nursing home she has been working at since I can remember. My grandma would work the 2-10pm shift, which would sometimes allow me to go to work with her during the summer. It was my favorite thing to do until I realized that her patients, my new friends, did not remember me in between visits. It was then that i learned the hardships of Alzheimer's.

When I was 14 i was told my Great Grandma, who was my everything, my best friend, had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. From then on it was a downhill battle. We moved to Dallas before her illness, she lived in Chicago, so it was very hard. We visited Chicago in March, before my 16th birthday, My great grandma was not herself. She had no idea who I was and it broke my heart, so much that i flew home early because i could not aacept the truth, I was very angry.

She passed away 3 weeks later...It was one of the hardest things i have ever been through. I felt selfish for being angry with her for not recognizing me when in the end it was not her fault. Alzheimer's is a very scary disease, I hope that one day we have a cure, but in the mean time at least a preventative or a drug to slow it down!

Mary Theresa Richard February 12th,1920- April 15th, 2003 Thank you for being my beautiful guardian angel gram, I miss you so much!

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile!!

For far too long, Alzheimer’s has been wrongly categorized as “an old person’s disease” and it’s time for a change. With the rapid rate at which the disease is growing, it’s time to get the younger folks, who will be the older folks before too long, involved.
