NRP Pulling Back The Curtain On Alzheimer’s Disease

At age 58, Bella Doolittle from Glens Falls was diagnosed with Early-onset Alzheimer’s.  Bella’s husband, Will Doolittle, is a writer at the Glens Falls Post Star. Navigating Alzheimer’s together, but experiencing it in very different ways, they created a podcast to talk about their different experiences. “Thankfully the progress of Bella’s Alzheimer’s is really slow. But it does get harder. Every time we talk you can see there are more strains, more negotiations, more questions [we] don’t quite know how to answer,” says Will. This interesting article further discusses how Bella and Will are navigating through this challenging, unfamiliar disease together.
