Bruce Willis’ family worried that any day could be his last after dementia diagnosis

Bruce Willis’ family are spending as much time with him as possible after he was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. The Die Hard star spent Thanksgiving with his loved ones including daughter Scout who shared a video to Instagram as she spent quality time with her dad showing them holding hands at a table, as well as sharing a photo of herself holding his palm to her face.

The holiday also saw his wife Emma Heming Willis share a throwback photo of the whole family including her daughters with Bruce, Mabel and Evelyn, and his ex-wife Demi Moore and their daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah. She wrote on the upload expressing her gratitude for them: “I’m grateful and thankful to know this kind of love.”

After revealing that Bruce had been diagnosed with language disorder aphasia in March 2022, the family confirmed in February that he had progressed to a frontotemporal dementia diagnosis. The disease has a typical life expectancy of between six and eight years, but can be as low as two years in some cases.

Now a source close to the family has claimed that Emma, 45, Demi, 61, Rumer, 35, Scout, 32, and Tallulah, 29, have been spending as much time as possible by his side alongside the younger girls Mabel, 11, and Evelyn, nine. They told US Weekly: “Bruce has good days and bad days, but in the last two months, there are many more bad days than good.

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

A further source then confirmed that the whole family is so determined to be with Bruce as much as possible they are pretty much living together. They said: “They’re all there all the time. Once Bruce was diagnosed, everyone came together to keep his memory of the family intact and to be there as a constant reminder they love him. Everything revolves around him.”

Meanwhile Rumer, who has always had a very close personal relationship with her father reportedly brings her eight-month-old daughter Louetta to spend time with Bruce as much as possible. The second source revealed: “Rumer wants to make sure Louetta knows Bruce. She wants him to be actively involved in Louetta’s life. It’s a very special bond.

“Rumer and her sisters love their dad so much. They are very conscious that any day could be his last.” On Father’s Day Rumer shared a photo of Bruce holding Louetta to her Instagram account “Papa I’m so lucky to have you and so is Lou.”
