Sally Quinn on Ben Bradlee’s Declining Health

During an interview that aired yesterday on C-SPAN, Washington Post columnist Sally Quinn discussed her husband Ben Bradlee‘s declining health due to Alzheimer’s and dementia and said that last week he began hospice treatment.

Bradley served as executive editor of The Washington Post from 1968 – 91, a time that included the resignation of President Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal.

Quinn said that she did not begin talking about the diagnosis until two years ago, and described his caretaking as “sacred.”

“I don’t think we have ever been as loving with each other, as we are now,” said Quinn. “And you know, we spend a lot of time together and we hold hands and he knows me and he loves having me there. And it’s just extremely rewarding to be able to be there for him now and try to make him happy and give him as much love as I can until he dies.”
