A Spouse-Caregiver's
Experience with
Alzheimer's Disease

Anson P. Hobbs

Editor's note: Mr. Hobbs's wife, Mildred Hobbs, died of dementia of the Alzheimer type on January 6, 1986, after suffering for many years with the illness. Her disease appeared to fit the "sporadic" form of the illness, as there was no record of any of her siblings, parents, or grandparents having the illness. Her parents lived well into their nineties, with no signs of dementia. She did experience a severe blow to her head at one time in her life (head trauma is a putative "risk factor" for Alzheimer's disease). Because of the family history, there appears to be no genetic risk to this victim's children. Mr. Anson Hobbs is a retired industrial-research chemist who blends his scientific knowledge and insight with his personal experience. He has personally supported magnetic-resonance-imaging (MRI) studies on Alzheimer's patients at the City of Faith Medical and Research Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and continues to promote research on this illness.
