My grandfather has Alzheimer's. This video, while perhaps entertaining, is also interesting if you consider that my grandfather has no short term memory for most everything that happens throughout the day, but he does seem to remember the cumulative effect of how he feels about how he is treated. In the video I am trying to get my grandfather to agree to let me help him change his diapers.
Edit: I imagine for everyone seeing this it must be a pretty sad sight. Well, you get used to it and it's not as moribund as it appears.

That was anticlimactic. At least you knew your grandfather, mine died before I was born. Probably for the best though, it's not easy having someone you know die.
I never actually met the guy, we were not even close. But yes, it is sad to have someone you know die; especially if you were close to the person and shared a lot of memories.
That's probably why I subconsciously stopped wanting to see my grandmother after I was told she had cancer, since I didn't really want to go through approximately 1 billion times worse depression than I went through when I found out she had cancer. I now regret that decision because she now has a mobility scooter that I want a go on.
