Tony Bennett has Alzheimer’s
February 1st, 2021 under Tony Bennett. [ Comments: none ]


Tony Bennett has a new album coming out, and he is doing for press for it. However, his wife, Susan, revealed to AARP magazine something else that has been going on in his life since 2016. That is when the 94-year-old singer was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

While the disease is slowly taking its toll on him and his memory, it has not affected his love of music. In fact, he still rehearses with a pianist twice a week.

Susan has become his caregiver and has been taking care of him nonstop since the pandemic started. She is not alone and has a good team backing her up, including his doctors.

His doctor, Gayatri Devi, M.D., told the magazine, he has “cognitive issues, but multiple other areas of his brain are still resilient and functioning well.” Then she added, “He is doing so many things, at 94, that many people without dementia cannot do. He really is the symbol of hope for someone with a cognitive disorder.”

Things like recording with Lady Gaga. The two worked on their album in 2018 and 2020.

Since being diagnosed, he has not experienced the anger that comes from the disease. He also knows who his loved ones are. Hopefully, he remains that way. As anyone, who knows someone who has had the disease, can tell you, it is the worst part of it.

I pray he has stabilized and for both Tony and his wife. Gd bless her for remaining by his side throughout all of this. That is not an easy thing to do, and she is not taking the easy way out.
