Recommended Blogs - About Having AD and Final Phase/Life

Postby Robin » Fri Jun 28, 2013 7:15 pm

The New York Times has a blog called "The New Old Age." It often has good articles on caregiving and aging. Last Monday's post is about two recommended blogs -- one about having Alzheimer's Disease, and the other on "the final phase of life." Both bloggers are physicians - one retired and one still active. The blogs are:

"Watching the Lights Go Out"
by David Hilfiker, a 68-year-old retired MD who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease in September 2012

"Life in the End Zone"
by Muriel Gillick, MD, a geriatrician and palliative care physician who cares for both elderly parents. She is also the author of a book titled "The Denial of Aging: Perpetual Youth, Eternal Life and Other Dangerous Fantasies."

I took a quick look; both blogs look very well-written.

Below, I've provided a link to the NY Times blog post. Note that the NY Times blog post refers to a Washington Post article about David Hilfiker. I've copied a link to that as well. Dr. Hilfiker lives in Washington, DC.
