Barbara Windsor Diagnosed With Alzheimer's

Dementia struggle for Barbara Windsor

'Rather than me living in fear she might get confused or upset, they'll know that if her behaviour seems odd, it's due to Alzheimer's and accept it for what it is, ' he added.

Dame Barbara had suffered health issues before, including multiple abortions and a nervous breakdown following the collapse of her first marriage to the underworld figure Ronnie Knight, who was eventually jailed for seven years.

Scott wanted to let the public know of the news so they could carry on as normal without the press wondering what was wrong with her incase something happened in public.

Alzheimer's disease is a neurological disorder in which the death of brain cells causes memory loss and cognitive decline.

Dame Barbara, who is 80, is among 225,000 people who develop dementia each year in the UK. The symptoms of the disease usually progress slowly over several years, so at first they can appear mild, but become more severe over time.

Mr Parry said there are more than 850,000 people in the United Kingdom living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

"So it's becoming a lot more hard for us to hide". "But this can also present itself through people losing track of money or being unable to manage bills, as their memory and reasoning skills decline".

Just being there for your loved ones with Alzheimer's can mean a lot.

So they decided she should return to Eastenders one last time and that her character should be killed off. "Others might lack their usual spontaneity or even exhibit changes to their preferences in food and drink".

After five abortions, the romantic advances of two Kray brothers and a husband who went to jail after an armed robbery, Dame Barbara Windsor had already stared into the face of adversity. The positive in all of this is that their life will get easier because they do go out and about walking and for dinner with friends. "Other might think that possessions have been hidden or stolen".

I was wary at first of seeing my granny after I heard she had been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's, a form of dementia. The person may repeat daily tasks, such as locking the front door, showering or cleaning. He didn't tell him the full story.

"It's important to seek medical advice as soon as possible, if you're seeing a loved one demonstrating these behaviours", says Waton. People with Alzheimer's can struggle to remember answers to simple questions such as "what did you do at the weekend?"

"Alzheimer's is a physical disease, in the same way that cancer or heart disease are, and there shouldn't be stigma in being open about it".
