The writing is wonderful. Serving customers ice cream all summer long, she is desperate for some kind of escape. One afternoon, a terrible lie slips from her tongue. And suddenly everyone wants to talk to her: the press, her schoolmates, and even the boy upstairs. Current thinking says we should "age in place" with the support of telemedicine conferencing, nurse practitioners and personal support workers nannies for grannies to supplement family caregivers until it all becomes too much. Then we will either shuffle off this mortal coil or be transported to a high-level facility designed to cope with extreme behavioural issues or complicated physical needs — or both.

In a post-mortem, Dr. Alzheimer discovered that her brain, which had fewer neurons than usual, had dark deposits plaques and fibrils tangles. Alzheimer wasn't the first to observe these abnormalities, but he was able to connect them with the aberrant behaviour and cognitive deficits of real patients. Although much more is known today, many discoveries since plaques and tangles, while initially tantalizing, have proved frustrating. For example, close to nuns from the School Sisters of Notre Dame in the United States signed on in the s for a long-range study of aging and dementia.
One of the nuns, Sister Mary, an Energizer bunny in a habit, taught until she was 84 and continued to ace psychological tests until shortly before she died at An autopsy revealed that her brain was riddled with plaques and tangles, particularly in the hippocampus and cerebral cortex, two prime areas that Alzheimer's attacks. She should have been demented — but she wasn't. Laboratory research isn't enough, says Larry Chambers, scientific adviser to the Alzheimer Society of Canada. We need education and training, he says, to help patients and caregivers cope with the disease as it progresses over the typically eight-year period from diagnosis to death.
That begins with public awareness and lessening societal stigma because "the more people understand this, the better prepared they will be when it happens to them. Chambers says, by developing elite regional facilities that provide residential care, and training for health-care workers, but that also function as academic centres of research into aging — similar to acute-care teaching hospitals. At the same time, he argues, we need to improve education and compensation for personal-support workers in long-term care homes.
In early January , Mr. Crosbie is as agitated as he was somnolent six weeks before. Workers have finished replacing the floor on his unit, so the hospital is less chaotic, but something is bothering him. Born in Chatham, Ont. Crosbie grew up in Montreal with a younger sister, played violin in the Montreal Junior Symphony Orchestra, competed in team sports, and became a member of both the Canadian national luge and bobsled teams. He was headed to the Winter Olympics in Grenoble, France, in until he crashed and broke his ankle badly.
Gingerly, Ms. Harrington tries to calm her husband, a man used to making decisions and giving orders.

She gently propels him toward his chair, but he balks; she tries to insert his earbuds so he can listen to some calming music, but he shrugs her off. She gently wipes his dripping nose, directs him to the bed, sits beside him and gives him a hug and a kiss on the cheek. Clarity is fleeting. He resumes pacing and mumbling.
A few minutes later a nurse comes in with his medication mixed into a small container of apple sauce and gives it to Ms.
Harrington to spoon into her husband's mouth. The couple met at the Montreal Gazette. They married in and moved to Toronto so that he could take up a job as group publisher of trade publications in what was then the Southam newspaper chain.

By the late s, Mr. Crosbie was general manager of The Globe.
By then, he was compensating for his memory lapses by taking copious notes in meetings, admitting to colleagues that otherwise he would forget what they said. Lots of people over 60 forget names and dates, and fear they are heading for senility.

Most aren't — at least not yet. Some researchers suggest that peanut butter provides a cheap and easy diagnostic tool, because Alzheimer's patients have a diminished sense of smell even in the early stages. Theories about preventatives abound, including exercise, watching your weight, learning a second language, completing a daily crossword, playing mind games, and even dousing your food with turmeric because there is a low rate of Alzheimer's in the Indian subcontinent.
All these measures are fine, but none has proved definitive in halting what Prof. There are also warnings about triggers. In the late s, a Canadian scientist with the peculiar name of Donald Crapper McLachlan tried to link aluminum saucepans with the onset of Alzheimer's, needlessly persuading many people to eliminate them from their kitchens.
