Daily Life with Dementia

"I was 58 when I learned I had early-onset Alzheimer’s.(...) While the diagnosis made sense to me, it was devastating. Still, I hadn’t expected it would sound a death knell for my employment. I had new challenges, but I was still a capable employee who brought, I believed, a lot to the table."

"People are living and working longer than ever, and that means the incidence of people in the workplace with early-onset dementia will increase.(...) I was still the same person I was the day before I received my diagnosis. I just needed to tackle my job — and my life — in a different way."

A very interesting article about dementia in the workplace from The New York Times.
