Sample text

For Mr. Weinberg this was a particularly troubling circumstance because he could no longer participate in an important lifeworld activity, dancing with his wife. The issue of whether or not a patient could walk was central to much of the assessment and care of the patients on the units. As Alzheimer’s patients decline, they gradually lose their abilities to do many things and the loss of the ability to walk is an important marker in this decline. Patients like Mr. Weinberg were viewed in the light of this prognosis of inevitable decline.

And the diagnosis does evolve. Lately more and more I hear, “Asperger Syndrome” or “Asperger’s Syndrome” applied to Calvin. Like all the others so far, it fits Calvin very well in some ways but not at all in others. Because it is a new one to many people, it doesn’t have as many connotations – sympathetic or negative – attached to it by the general population. It won’t do as a plea for understanding and tolerance from laymen. ” Still generally conversationally neutral, it neither opens or shuts gates, except in very specialized contexts.

And if you are going to let one through the gate, then how many should you “shop about” for before making a choice? We could have told the woman in church nothing. We could have believed there was nothing to tell her. I think we would have been wrong, but this has been done, more times than probably anyone knows. ” As moving time approaches yet again, I’m facing the temptation to “lose” some of Calvin’s records rather than acquire some more. But then I remember our long fight through diagnoses to get the classroom aide that Calvin needed, and imagine life without the help the diagnosis has made possible.
