Diagnosed At Such An Early AgeAllison Espiritu
Dr. Joyce Simons was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s at the early age of 56. She admits that she was really good at keeping herself buys and ingoring the things that she should’ve addressed as far as her health, this included both her diabetes and eventually her diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.
Watch as she gives a group of Dementia Trainees at the Alzheimer’s Association some insight on what it’s like to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at such an early age. Her diagnosis not only affected her but it also affected her family and children. It too was difficult for them to accept her diagnosis but as Joyce shows us life goes on and you can’t let this disease stop you from enjoying what you have.
