"Although this behavior is usual in his clinical condition,” he shared, adding that Willis’ mother, Marlene Willis, is also worried of her grandkids.

The Hollywood star’s family, including his wife Emma Heming Willis, ex-wife Demi Moore, and five daughters, is making sure the actor’s remaining days are memorable as he battles frontotemporal dementia (FTD).

They have been actively raising awareness regarding the health concerns faced by him since he was diagnosed with Aphasia via TV interviews and social media campaigns.

Speaking with In Touch Weekly about the ailing actor, an insider said, “They’ve been cooking his favorite dishes, reading to him or just sitting quietly.”

“Everyone just wants to spend as much quality time with him and make sure he knows how deeply loved and appreciated he is,” the source added.
