Inukshuk Help: With Alzheimers- do songs remain? (47) RE: Help: With Alzheimers- do songs remain? 13 Mar 01


Ruby was a vivacious little professional musician who suffered from a particularly rapid onset of Altzheimer's. No longer able to recognize her own family, or carry on a coherent conversation, she sang beautifully and remained very cheerful. She showed no interest in the piano, however, although she had been a real wizard. For months she continued to sing throughout most of the day. Then in a period of a couple of weeks her songs were gone. She became bewildered. In a couple more weeks she was gone. Poor Ruby, I still have a stack of her sheet music including one signed for her by Rudi Valee.
