The family of the esteemed action movie star Bruce Willis is navigating through each day as the actor’s health continues to decline. In February, the 68-year-old received the diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia.

“Bruce has good days and bad days, but in the last two months, there are many more bad days than good,” revealed a source familiar with the situation to US Magazine. “This experience has brought the whole family even closer together. No one knows how much time Bruce has left, so they’re soaking up every moment they get with him.”

The source added, “Bruce has around-the-clock care, but at least one family member is always with him.”

Another insider shared with the magazine that the Willis family has chosen to reside in the same house to maximize their time together. “They’re all there all the time,” they disclosed. “Once Bruce was diagnosed, everyone came together to keep his memory of the family intact and to be there as a constant reminder [that they] love him. [Everything] revolves around him.”

In October, long-time friend and writer Glenn Gordon Caron shared with the New York Post that Bruce had become non-verbal. “He used to be a voracious reader — he didn’t want anyone to know that,” Caron said. “He’s not reading now. All those language skills are no longer available to him, and yet he’s still Bruce.”

According to the US Government’s National Institute of Ageing, individuals diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia typically have a life expectancy ranging from six to eight years.
