Jay Jacobsen, my late husband, had quite a time in the last five years of his life suffering from Alzheimer's. The disease started about five years before he passed away, and progressively attacked his body and mind to the state of disablement of his body, and memory loss in his mind. The first thing he developed was called a TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack), or mini-stroke; in which his carotid artery in his neck became partially blocked to the point his doctor highly recommended surgery to clean inside his artery. He chose not to do so because he found out through research, that most recoveries had some type of difficulty, either during or after surgery; and that the percentages of successes relating to that type of surgery were only 20% to 40%. He took aspirin to thin his blood every day, but as the years went by, he developed poor circulation in his right leg. He recovered somewhat from the numbness and memory loss from the attack, however, little by little his focus and memory-loss caused his words to become distorted. He became crippled, but wouldn't use a cane, and found a walker very difficult. So, he ended up in a wheelchair; and in three various nursing homes. Sad to say, that was the way his life ended. He, alone made the choice. There's not a day go by that I don't miss him; but perhaps he's in a better place with no pain and a clear mind.

"Your assistance was not just helpful, but so affirming and
comforting as we went through this long process! You responded so
quickly to my questions, and although we have never met in person,
I always felt there was a person backing me up who really
cared about my dad and what I needed to help him make this
decision. You were responsive, but not intrusive. I appreciated how
you stayed in touch, but the amount of contact was so
