January 13, (THEWILL) – Veteran actress, Joke Silva, has opened up on how she is coping with her husband, Olu Jacobs’ health challenge.
In November 2021, the actress had stated that Jacobs was battling with dementia after pictures showed her husband had lost weight.
The ace actress, also said Jacobs has been struggling with the ailment for a couple of years and doesn’t understand what is going on.
Speaking on Mercy Johnson’s show, ‘Mercy’s Menu’, Silva revealed how she has been able to cope with her husband’s health condition.
According to her, at some point, she committed Jacobs’ health to God in prayers and also adopted traditional medicines but realised his symptoms were getting worse.
She added that the moment she accepted her new reality, coping with Jacobs’ condition became so much easier.
“I think for me, it was getting to the place of acceptance. Sometimes, when a partner starts exhibiting some things, there will be the religious side. All these prayers and things.
“There are also other sides that say if you use all these natural herbs and the natural this and the organic things and you’re doing everything that you’re being told to do and there is no change. It is almost as if the patient is getting worse.
“But when you get to the stage of acceptance that this is your new reality, honestly, it is so much easier. You realise this is the new season, you’re walking with your partner and you meet them where they are. It’s so much easier.”
