Those diagnosed with Dementia/Alzheimer’s live an average of seven years after their symptoms first become noticeable. It has been eleven years for Greg, who after living at home for ten of those years now lives in a memory care facility in Chicago.
Every day, his husband Michael; a kind, earnest and resilient man who looks like Santa Claus and approaches the disease with the practicality of a retired educator (which he is); visits the love of his life and fights to preserve the memory of their 41 years together.
