    If a Buddha got Alzheimers, would you know? The real question being: if there is a core or kernel self that's independent of normal self, mind, memories and relationships, might a, say, 30-minute specially guided meditation session, singly or with a group, encourage and enable people with Alzheimers to let go of the struggle for a while and float. (Hindu meditation could be just as good, but it comes from a religion, which Buddhism doesn't.) Maybe it'd be impossible for some, but maybe it could help some.
