Bruce Willis' condition worsens amidst dementia diagnosis

Now, Glenn Gordon Caron (69) is giving a new update on Bruce's status to the 'New York Post'. He apparently talks to the actor monthly to keep up with his health. 

“The thing that makes [his disease] so mind-blowing is [that] if you’ve ever spent time with Bruce Willis, there is no one who had any more joie de vivre [joy of living] than he," Glenn explains, "He loved life and … just adored waking up every morning and trying to live life to its fullest". 

It seems that his health has taken a turn, and Bruce Willis is no longer verbal. While the actor cannot talk anymore, Glenn thinks Bruce can still recognize him. "My sense is the first one to three minutes he knows who I am," he says. Glenn goes on to explain why this new development is taking a toll on Bruce, but how he still seems like the same man he's always been.

“He’s not totally verbal; he used to be a voracious reader — he didn’t want anyone to know that — and he’s not reading now. All those language skills are no longer available to him, and yet he’s still Bruce".

Last month, Bruce Willis' wife, Emma Heming Willis (45), told the 'Today Show' that she isn't sure if Bruce understands his health condition. 

"What I’m learning is that dementia is hard," Emma explains. "It’s hard on the person diagnosed. It’s also hard on the family. And that is no different for Bruce, or myself, or our girls. When they say that this is a family disease, it really is".
