Singer Amy Grant's father has been diagnosed with dementia.
Dr. Burton Grant, 80, began showing signs of a faltering memory in late 2008 and the Grammy winner and her sisters finally forced him to seek help from doctors, who determined he was dealing with a loss of overall brain function.
She tells America's People magazine, "Watching his brilliant mind go away was tough."
The news prompted the I Will Remember You hitmaker to retire her dad's medical licence and hire round-the-clock caregivers, and the 51 year old admits the disease has presented a new set of challenges for her family.
Grant says, "He might not know my name, but I sense familiarity... It's a new reality. He doesn't make sense, but it's the comfort of hearing him talk and talking back to him. I wouldn't have guessed this is the way my dad's life played out. But I wouldn't change it. The unexpected and hard aspects of life draw us together."
It was on this day (June 15th) in 1979 that Joy Division unveiled their iconic debut album 'Unknown Pleasures'.
