Dementia Alters Marital Relationships
Tracy Mobley is only 45 years old, and has been living with Early Onset Dementia/Frontal Lobe Dementia for 7 years. She is the author of Young Hope, The Broken Road, and founder of Camp Building Bridges, a respite camp for youngsters of parents with dementia. Tracy writes poignantly in her guest blog, “I Miss You” on www.thealzheimerspouse.com, about the changes her Early Onset Dementia/FTD has brought to her marriage from her point of view.
The spouses on www.thealzheimerspouse.com discuss every issue related to marriage and Alzheimer’s Disease/dementia from their perspective. They discuss how their spouses’ changes in personality and abilities have impacted their relationship and offer support and advice on how to cope with them. Joan Gershman, founder of the website, writes daily blogs from her perspective, about how she is coping with the relationship changes Alzheimer’s Disease brought to her marriage when her husband was diagnosed at age 63.
With Tracy’s writing, the care giving spouses are afforded the rare opportunity to hear the perspective of the spouse with dementia. Her point of view helps the care giving spouses understand their own spouses’ emotions, which their dementia may have prevented them from expressing.
