Alzheimer's is an awful illness. It will bring down even the toughest person and I won't even mention the abuse these ill people face in medical or care institutions bc they can't remember anything from sexual to physical abuse not to mention the psychological. In these cases makes me wonder since it can happen to literally all of us no matter how successful we are so if possible shouldn't they make it possible like they do with assisted death(aka suicide) that few countries do? Bc those illnesses ruin families not to mention non of us want to become victims of abuse all over again its just reliving an entire roller coaster and nobody will help you. So in these cases I do think that maybe when it comes to incurable illnesses assisted death should be allowed while the person is still able to make the choice. That is something i would prefer than being a human shell not to mention it would not burden your family and they wont be sad or depressed when they think of you. They will still remember you as beautiful and not pitiful body that slowly loses its functions till you die painfully in an ugly way after constantly being saved by doctors cuz they cant let you die on purpose or end your life even if you are in extreme pain bc it would be murder in some peoples eyes. If there is no cure I hope they can make assisted death possible for patients with incurable illnesses
