I had a very long phone call with Connie Wade at Halifax. She was calling to let me know that on January 26th, 2012 there would be another court hearing to institute a Baker Act again.

Connie also told me that I am the designated GA. I asked her what a GA was and she said it stands for Guardian Advocate. (I couldn’t understand her pronunciation so I asked her, “Can you spell it?” She replied, “Yes, I can.” But then she continued talking without spelling it for me, as if she thought I was testing her intelligence!)

Connie said that Aricept and Namenda are the only two drugs which are used to “treat” dementia. She said that they are not cures, and that they only (hopefully, hypothetically) slow the progress of the disease.
