Alzheimer's Disease
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Joann's grandmother was the best. Since Joann was born, her grandmother had been spoiling her. She took her to the park, bought her ice cream, and even went ice-skating with her. Joann enjoyed sleeping over at her house and cooking together.
 
2     When Joann turned eight, she began noticing changes in her grandmother. They seemed to be small changes at first. Her grandmother began forgetting small things. Slowly, these changes became more noticeable. Her grandmother forgot where she left things all the time. She forgot people's names. She forgot what she was going to do next. She talked about things from long ago as if they just happened. She couldn't remember the things that had just happened.
 
3     These changes were upsetting enough, but then some of the actions became dangerous to her grandmother and to others. Her grandmother began leaving food cooking on the stove. It could have started a fire! Her grandmother would take a walk around the neighborhood where she had lived for thirty years. Then she couldn't remember how to get home. Fortunately, neighbors always managed to help her but if they hadn't, who knows what would have happened. Her grandmother couldn't live alone anymore.
