Police found this missing man with Alzheimer’s disease, But What he was doing WILL MELT YOUR HEART!!!!

When the mind forgets, the heart remembers. Melvyn Amrine was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s three years ago. For his wife, Doris, it’s been hard to watch. But she says something happened recently that reminded her that the man she fell in love with is still there. That happened a day before Mother’s Day. Melvyn, who usually needs assistance to walk, turned out missing. He was found by police 2 miles away from his home. He couldn’t remember where he lived, but he wasn’t lost, he was on a mission. This story really touched my heart. To all the people struggling with this terrible disease and for their loved ones, always remember, their is hope, it is called love. Love makes miracles happen. Enjoy and share this heart-warming story.

The power of love is a curious thing. No wonder in so many fairy tales love’s first kiss breaks spells and saves the day. In real life not much is different. Alzheimer’s disease is quite a mysterious illness. It is one form of dementia, which leads to a loss of brain function, that gradually gets worse over time; it affects memory, thinking, and behavior. Alzheimer’s disease was first described by German psychiatrist and neuropathologist Alois Alzheimer in 1906 and was named after him. Most often, people over 65 get affected by this disease. As it advances, symptoms can include confusion, irritability, aggression, mood swings, trouble with language, and long-term memory loss. All this makes the person unrecognizable, which becomes a big challenge for his family and loved ones. The cause and progression of Alzheimer’s disease are not yet well understood and are still being researched. Current treatments only help with the symptoms. Unfortunately, there are no available treatments that stop or reverse the progression of the disease.
