Bruce Willis’ wife Emma Heming ‘freaked out’ when she researched his dementia condition

Model, Emma Heming has revealed that she began freaking out when she first heard about her husband Bruce Willis symptoms amid his ongoing battle with dementia. Emma has been caring for the actor since he was diagnosed with aphasia in March 2022. Aphasia is a condition that affects a persons language processing and communication abilities. In February, Willis diagnosis worsened to Frontotemporal dementia, which can cause slowed movement, stiffness, balance problems and changes in behavior or language. I didnt know where to go, what to look up, Im looking things up and its freaking me out, Heming said on Sundays episode of her Make Time To Connect YouTube series. There wasnt a lot [of information about FTD] but you guys popped up, she told the Remember Me podcasts founders Maria Kent Beers and Rachael Martinez. I started listening and I felt like, Oh my gosh Im so grateful to hear other peoples stories.’ Emma who shares daughters Mabel, 11, and Evelyn, 9, with the actor said the caregivers who have been helping Willis, 68, throughout his diagnosis have been a source of support for her. Theres nothing that levels the playing field like FTD. And I have made some of the greatest connections with other care partners, people like you who just get it, she explained. There doesnt have to be so much explanation.You guys have been so helpful to me. I want to say thank you. Im surprised Im not crying because thats where I go to when I think of people who have been that lifeline for me.Heming last month admitted that its hard to know whether the actor is aware of his condition and deteriorating health.Dementia is hard, she said on the Today show. Its hard on the person diagnosed, its also hard on the family. And that is no different for Bruce, or myself, or our girls. When they say this is a family disease, it really is. Heming, who proudly calls herself Willis care partner, said learning of her husbands diagnosis was the blessing and the curse.To finally understand what was happening, so that I could be into the acceptance of what is. It doesnt make it any less painful, but just being in the know of what is happening to Bruce makes it a little easier. The post Bruce Willis wife Emma Heming freaked out when she researched his dementia condition appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
