A Story of Health, Cognitive Decline is the story of Sam, a 72 year-old widower from the “Baby Boom” generation who grew up and still lives in the Boston area. His wife of over 40 years passed away last year. Since her death he has not been as social and doesn’t see friends and family as much as he used to. Sam’s family is concerned that he is forgetting things more than usual and missing appointments. They wonder if this is just normal for someone his age or if there is something else going on with his brain function. They don’t want to insult him and wonder how to approach the topic with him.
