About 800,000 in U.S. have Alzheimer’s, live alone
San Francisco Chronicle

Joseph Engh was visiting his father in San Francisco six months ago when he noticed something was wrong. His 89-year-old father, Moy Ng, seemed surlier than usual, and a little forgetful. Ng had developed pneumonia, which had prompted Engh’s visit, so Engh took his father to see his doctor. Ng, it turned out, has Alzheimer’s disease – he might have had it for months or even years.
