Jack Nicholson is a prominent American actor and filmmaker with a career spanning more than 50 years. However, the singer has been away from the public spotlight recently, with rumors that the star’s health is deteriorating.

As the most nominated male actor in Academy Award history, the star has been and will continue to be regarded as one of Hollywood’s all-time greats. But, at age 84, the star appears to have faded from public view.

According to a source close to the actor, he spends his “sad last days” at his Los Angeles residence.

Despite no official confirmation from the celebrity or his spokespeople, Radar was told by a close acquaintance that Jack “never leaves his house anymore,” with his son and daughter taking care of him.

“The Mulholland Drive neighborhood is pretty close-knit, and they’re all worried about him,” the insider stated.

“Physically, he is well — but his mind is gone. It’s heartbreaking to see a gifted performer like Jack go out this way.”

A singer’s friend also said to Closer Weekly after he made a rare comment following the tragic death of basketball legend Kobe Bryant.

Following the catastrophic helicopter crash that killed Kobe and eight others, Jack said: “I was used to seeing and chatting to Kobe… It kills you.”

“We’ll miss him and think of him all the time.”

Following this, a source revealed that the actor is “making up for lost time” with his family and children after living life to the fullest.

Although fans are left wondering what is going on with the actor, given that his last film appearance was in 2010, it is safe to presume he has retired from the entertainment profession that earned him so much glory.

Memory loss and forgetfulness grow more widespread as we age. According to Bupa, typical age-related memory loss does not create too much trouble as long as people are given adequate time to learn and recall things.

In certain situations, though, memory loss is the first sign of a more serious disorder, such as dementia.

According to the Mayo Clinic, dementia refers to a combination of symptoms that impact not only memory but also thinking and social functions. These symptoms are so severe that they disrupt a person’s daily life.

There are several varieties of dementia, the most common of which is Alzheimer’s disease.

Unfortunately, signs of dementia can lead to psychological disturbances such as despair, anxiety, paranoia, and hallucinations.

There are currently approximately 900,000 dementia patients in the United Kingdom. According to the Alzheimer’s Society, this figure is expected to climb to 1.6 million by 2040.

Despite the vast list of symptoms, early detection of the disorder implies that its progression can be halted, which means the person may be able to keep mental function for a longer period of time.

Delaying the development of dementia by five years would cut the incidence of dementia deaths in half, saving 30,000 lives each year.

According to the NHS, it is critical to maintain your overall health, especially after being diagnosed with dementia.

You can maintain your mental and physical health even after a dementia diagnosis by getting enough sleep every night, eating a healthy balanced diet, exercising regularly, and talking to a GP if you feel any symptoms.
