ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
Synopsis

Synopsis

“This is a lovely book about a devastating problem—Alzheimer’s. The pages are like poetry and the photos say more than words. Anyone who has cared for a loved one with Alzheimer’s will relate to and appreciate every one of these pages.”
—Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor

“There is a sweetness in the light Judith Fox finds that softens a brutally unique and all too common experience. Ms. Fox has made the story about love and devotion when it might easily be expected to be about a more tragic and angry vision. But the tough stuff is lurking around every corner...”
—Arthur Ollman, Director, School of Art, Design, and Art History at San Diego State University

Three years into their marriage, Judith Fox’s husband, Dr. Edmund Ackell, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. Over the course of the next ten years, Fox watched as the man who used to perform surgery, fly planes, and run universities, forgot how to turn on the coffee maker, place a phone call, or remember what his wife had told him two minutes earlier.

More than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s. A poignant and beautiful portrait of a man with Alzheimer’s as seen through the loving lens and words of his wife and care-partner, I Still Do: Loving and Living With Alzheimer’s puts a human face in front of the statistics, exploring the disease through Fox’s intimate photographs and poetic writing. While the details of I Still Do are personal and unique, this deeply candid story of illness, aging, partnership, and loving is universal.
