The Notebook is one of the most romantic movies of our time. We see a loving husband reading to his wife with Alzheimer’s Disease, recounting their lives together, eventually they both lie down, fall asleep and pass away peacefully. Is this the reality of Alzheimer’s? Or did the movie forget to show you how Alzheimer’s patients forget how to swallow, how to close their eyes and how to use their limbs? Registered Counsellor specialising in Alzheimer’s support- Lorna Quinn, discusses this horrifying and misunderstood disease.
