Alzheimer’s Disease is often associated with the old but what many people don’t realise is it can affect those much younger than 65. At this stage it’s classified as Early-Onset Alzheimer’s and can be easily mistaken as a temporary, stress-related condition. While there is no cure for any form of Alzheimer’s, expert care and counselling can help make a difference.
This initiative by Dubai Health Authority aims to raise awareness of this condition. It depicts what typically happens to a sufferer as a little bit of themselves are symbolically fragmented into pieces. With counselling however, the puzzle can be put back together. While it will never be perfect, it will nonetheless provide some solace and acceptance to the sufferer.
