Rick Phelps was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease in 2010 at the age of 57. He started an Alzheimer’s and impairment support group called Memory People, a network of closed Facebook groups where patients, caregivers, family members and advocates can share stories and walk this journey together. The groups are closed, not for purposes of exclusivity, but so that anything shared is safe and private.
Rick has made a number of videos about his personal journey. This one is called Alzheimer’s Awareness, and it gives the viewer some insight into what the disease looks like from the patient’s point of view.
