    Thanks Paul – such a useful ‘share’ – my mother had Alzheimer’s –
    and I’m beginning to wonder what my increasing, though still nowhere near dominant, forgetfulness is coming from – argh!
    Susan is so right about the loss of the previously ‘present’ person, and the grieving for someone who is and isn’t ‘gone’

    Enjoyed this interview. Especially found the connection to the two types of dementia fascinating. Timely topic for us and for so many others. Thanks.
