The Call - September 26, 2003 - Battle With Alzheimer's

holstonconference.com [cached]

Like Like a computer virus, Alzheimer's disease has invaded the home of a California clergy couple, Al and Sharon Rhodes-Wickett, and turned their lives upside down. When Sharon was asked to serve as superintendent of the Long Beach District in 1990, Al took leave from active ministry to be home with Ben and daughter Rachel.Sharon served as a district superintendent for four years and is senior pastor of Westwood United Methodist church in Los Angeles. Like many people, Sharon had thought of Alzheimer's as a disease that strikes the elderly.Here Sharon and Al were, in the prime of their ministry, with two young children. Al was an effective pastor and a gifted musician who used his brain a lot, according to Sharon.Sharon sees the disease as death by a "thousand subtractions." As a pastor of a 600-member congregation, a wife and a mother, Sharon finds herself in the dual role of caregiver and care receiver.She is trained to care for others, a role she loves.But she admits that receiving care, such as a weekly dinner for the family prepared by women in the church, is difficult."People can't believe that someone Al's age has Alzheimer's," Sharon says.Al is 58, Sharon, 54.Sharon and the children like to accent the accomplishments and good memories of their husband and father. When Al Rhodes-Wickett was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at a relatively early age, his wife, Sharon, discovered that few resources address how to deal with the early onset of the disease or help children understand it.Sharon suggests starting with the Web site: http://www.alz.org . From there, you can find the support organization nearest you.Sharon and her children are in a pilot support group funded by the Unihealth Foundation."The creators of our program are now completing a manual for replication, which means that this wonderful group, which included both teaching and support, will soon be available through the Alzheimer's Association," she says.Sharon recommends several books:Regarding Courage to Care, Sharon says, "I loved this book.


Battle with Alzheimer’s draws family together

Like a computer virus, Alzheimer's disease has invaded the home of a California clergy couple, Al and Sharon Rhodes-Wickett, and turned their lives upside down.The comparison to a computer virus ends, however with the realization that this disease that slowly steals memory cannot be stopped. The ordeal for the United Methodist family began when Al was in his late 40s.He had trouble completing tasks and became unusually forgetful.One day, he forgot to pick up his young son, Ben, from school.When Sharon was asked to serve as superintendent of the Long Beach District in 1990, Al took leave from active ministry to be home with Ben and daughter Rachel.Sharon served as a district superintendent for four years and is senior pastor of Westwood United Methodist church in Los Angeles. Al's condition worsened.After months of observation and tests, the diagnosis finally came: Alzheimer's. Like many people, Sharon had thought of Alzheimer's as a disease that strikes the elderly.Here Sharon and Al were, in the prime of their ministry, with two young children."I had that sinking feeling that so many people have when a disaster or a train wreck happens," Sharon recalls."I just felt swallowed up … my gosh, now what?"However, she wasn't surprised by the final diagnosis, since Al's father had also suffered from the disease."‘This is it,' I thought. ‘This is what we are going to have to live with.'" Al was an effective pastor and a gifted musician who used his brain a lot, according to Sharon."He bought a computer long before they were commonplace and began writing programs that were more suited to what he wanted to do.Right now he can barely figure out how to go online or switch the printer from color to black ink.It just breaks my heart because he's really a smart person." The husband and father they once knew is disappearing.Sharon sees the disease as death by a "thousand subtractions."As a pastor of a 600-member congregation, a wife and a mother, Sharon finds herself in the dual role of caregiver and care receiver.She is trained to care for others, a role she loves.But she admits that receiving care, such as a weekly dinner for the family prepared by women in the church, is difficult."People can't believe that someone Al's age has Alzheimer's," Sharon says.Al is 58, Sharon, 54.Ben, 17, is a high school senior, and Rachel, 21, attends Scripps College in Claremont, Calif. Because her dad was so young when the disease emerged, Rachel says she has had few places to turn for support.Sharon and the children like to accent the accomplishments and good memories of their husband and father.
