Gary Barg - Editor-in-chiefThe Barry Petersen Interview

Gary Barg: The thing about Alzheimer’s that is so insidious is your loved one is still there, but they are not there. It is the true long goodbye and denial is so easy to do. Could you talk a little bit about how you walked through that process?

Barry Petersen: The worst part was realizing afterward what I had done; and not realizing at the time how people were reaching out to help me see it, but I could not.

Has anyone applied for food stamps and been denied because your total income (SSI and military retirement) is over that annual cost-of-living adjustment (COLA)? We can barely pay our bills and we are short of money to buy groceries. Any advice or help with this matter would be great!
