Bruce Willis’ wife, Emma Heming shares a video discussing the difficulties of caring for her husband, Bruce Willis, amid his battle with Dementia.
Earlier this year, the Willis family announced that the actor had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia.
Emma assumed the role of caretaker for Bruce, 68, and is asking her fellow community of caretakers to send pictures of themselves among beautiful things in the world.
“So I don’t want it to be misconstrued that I’m good, ’cause I’m not. I’m not good,” she said, adding that her thinking can often become “doom and gloom.”
“I’m asking care partners to send photos because I just think it’s so important for us to sort of break up our thinking. Which can feel, for me, very much like doom and gloom. So I know it looks like I’m out living my best life. I have to make a conscious effort, every single day, to live the best life that I can,” she said in a video shared on Instagram.
“I do that for myself, I do that for our two children and Bruce, who would not want me to live any other way,” Heming Willis added.
