My wife owns an assisted living facility. A good percentage of patients have some form of Dementia. It seems in the early and mid stages of whatever the form may be, short term memory loss is a constant. However most remember the past clear as day. Sad… I’m 61 and I tell my wife jokingly, “If I get like that, give me a bath holding my head under the water from 3-5 minutes.” Life expectancy has gone from 55 years old to 70+ in a couple of generations.
