Bruce Willis' wife shares candid post about working as a caregiver

Glenn Gordon Caron said that while his friend Bruce Willis can no longer communicate in the same way, he knows Willis is happy about his show “Moonlighting.” I’m finally getting around to streaming.

Caron, one of the creators of the series Willis starred in in the 1980s, spoke to the New York Post about his friend who he said he tries to meet once or every month or so.

“I know he’s really happy that the show is being made available to people,” Caron said.

“Moonlighting,” a popular romantic comedy series starring Willis and Cybil Shepherd as private investigators, is now streaming on Hulu.

“The process (of getting ‘Moonlighting’ on Hulu) took quite a while and Bruce’s illness is a progressive illness, so I was able to talk to him about my hopes of getting before the illness left him as unable to communicate as he is now.” get the show back in front of people,” Caron said. “I know it means a lot to him.”

It was announced last year that Willis would be there resign from his career due to cognitive problems. He has now been diagnosed frontotemporal dementia (FTD)which is a progressive brain disease.

Part of the tragedy of Willis’ diagnosis, his friend said, was that “no one had more joy in life than” Willis.

“He’s not entirely verbal; He used to be a voracious reader – he didn’t want anyone to know – and now he doesn’t read anymore. All of those language skills are no longer available to him, and yet he’s still Bruce,” Caron said. “When you’re with him, you know he’s Bruce and you’re grateful he’s there, but the joy of life is gone.”
