Joke Silva Says Husband ,Olu Jacobs, Has Dementia
Nollywood actress, Joke Silva, has revealed that her husband, and Veteran actor, Olu Jacobs, is living with dementia.
“It is a degenerative disease that affects the brain and it is almost like a Parkinson type of disease, it affects the brain and affects the person.
“First time I’m saying this publicly that is what we have been dealing with but the thing is, it is hard on him because he doesn’t understand what is going on and it is hard on us family members as well.”
“We have gone through some times and situations recently that I wish I had the old you here so I don’t battle these times on my own but we are grateful for the moment of clarity. I miss the times we work together.”
Dementia is a general term for loss of memory, language, problem-solving and other thinking abilities that are severe enough to interfere with daily life.
