Lee Young Ja stated that her mother is currently in the hospital due to Alzheimer's disease.

The popular comedian and food enthusiast revealed the heartbreaking truth on the May 8th broadcast of 'Stars' Top Recipe at Fun-Staurant'. While visiting a restaurant, Lee Young Ja stated the importance of health after listening to a story of a worker whose mother passed away from lung cancer. 

She stated: "My mother is currently at the hospital. She is suffering from Alzheimer's. Because I'm a celebrity and earn a lot, I can handle it. But if you have a regular job, you need at least two sons and a daughter to take care of you. If there's one sick person, you need at least three people to take care of them." 

Check out the clip below.

My dad was diagnosed with Dementia in March 2016 and it was just mum & myself looking after him. I would end up going to work feeling stressed, lacking sleep and dreeding going home at the end of the day - I don't know how my mum coped with him 24/7. He ended up going into a residential home in November 2018 which was costing us, or should I say him, £3000 a month but the staff & other residents were so welcoming. Sadly, he was admitted to hospital at the beginning of October 2019 with an infection and passed away on the 30 October 2019. I never want to spend so much time in a hospital again and getting 'that call' at 1 in the morning to say he'd passed away and then having to tell my mum & brother will always be on my mind.


He didn't have the form of Dementia known as Alzheimers but had Vascular Dementia caused by minor strokes. Any form of Dementia is horrible & its a condition that wasn't talked about much a fews back but not now. At least 3 people in my office have relatives with Dementia or know people who have it and because each persons situation is different you don't know how long it will be before their condition deteriorates or how quickly it will happen.
