Demi Moore is growing closer to ex-husband Bruce Willis than she has in years after she reportedly moved into his home to help care for him as he battles a dementia diagnosis.
The 60-year-old actress is helping care for the 67-year-old Die Hard star alongside his wife Emma Heming Willis, 44, and their two young daughters, according to Radar.
DailyMail.com has reached out to Demi’s representatives for comment.
Demi and Emma are reportedly teaming up to care for Bruce in the wake of his frontotemporal dementia diagnosis, which Emma shared her perspective on earlier this week.
“Demi has moved on and won’t be leaving until the end,” a source claimed to the site, while noting that Demi had also spent a lot of time living with Bruce and his family at the height of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“At first no one outside the family could understand what Demi was doing living with her ex and his new wife, but now it makes sense,” they added. “Demi has been a rock to the family and she is determined to make sure that every day she has Bruce left on earth is filled with love.”
A rep for Moore told Radar that she was not committed to living with Bruce and Emma, but another source claimed the actress had “never left” her pod with her husband’s family.
“Now Bruce will go before her,” the source added.
At the height of the pandemic, Bruce spent time sheltering with Demi and their adult children in Sun Valley, Idaho.
The unusual arrangement was originally supposed to include Emma, but was delayed after one of her daughters and Bruce accidentally pricked herself with a hypodermic needle found in a park.
Emma, who shares daughters Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, eight, with Bruce, opted to delay her trip to take the girl to the doctor, while her husband left early for Idaho.
A source previously revealed to the publication that Bruce was “determined to stay coherent and lucid for as long as possible” in hopes of being able to impress his eldest daughter’s soon-to-be granddaughter, Rumer Willis.
She announced that she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Derek Richard Thomas in late December.
On Tuesday, Bruce’s wife, Emma, tried to “raise awareness” about frontotemporal dementia following her husband’s diagnosis with the disorder.
In a video posted to his Instagram, Willis, 44, spoke of channeling his pain into “something good” and using his platform to spread awareness about the ailment.
‘I just saw something about me getting my five minutes, which is great. Which means you’re listening. So I’m going to take my five minutes and turn it into 10 because I’m always going to stand up for my husband,” she began.

‘I will always advocate for my husband’: Bruce’s wife Emma is using her voice to ‘raise awareness’ for frontotemporal dementia following her husband’s diagnosis with the condition
‘And while I’m at it, I’m going to raise awareness for FTD and for caregivers, who are unsung heroes out there. And then, and then, I’m going to turn my hurt and my anger and my sadness and make something good around something that feels less. So, take care of this space, because I didn’t come to play.’
It’s been a year since Willis’s family announced the 67-year-old actor would be leaving his career after being diagnosed with aphasia. Last month, his family said the disease had progressed to frontotemporal dementia.
The post was captioned: “Right here turning my 5 minutes into 10. I have sat in silence for far too long and am so ready to be embraced by this strong and loving community that my family and I find ourselves in as we try to lift them up in return. Come on #ftdawareness #dementiaawareness #caregiversupport’.
The post came after Willis posted an emotional plea asking families of people with dementia for advice on how to help their loved ones navigate the world safely.
Heming Willis posted the video to Instagram on Saturday claiming he was on “duty to raise awareness for dementia.”
“If you’re someone who’s caring for someone who has dementia, you know how difficult and stressful it can be, just getting it out into the world and safely navigating it, even just for a cup of coffee.”
In her caption, the actor’s wife asks for advice on how to do this with her husband following her own diagnosis.
‘To other caregivers or dementia care specialists navigating this world… Any tips or advice on getting your loved ones out into the world safely? Please share below.
Willis’s diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia may include symptoms such as personality changes, slurred speech, and motor impairment.
The Hollywood icon was seen last week, the first time since his family revealed that he had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (FTD) last month.
FTD affects the lobes of the brain behind the forehead, which deal with behaviour, problem solving, planning and emotions, with symptoms including personality changes, obsessive behavior and speech difficulties.
Willis shares Rumer, 34, Scout, 31, and Tallulah, 29, with Moore, 60, whom he was married to from 1987 to 2000. He also has two daughters, Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, 8, with his wife, Emma, 14. . years.

‘Let’s go’: Willis opened up about the condition in a video shared to his account on Tuesday
FTD occurs when nerve cells in the lobes behind the forehead die and the pathways that connect them change.
The left temporal lobe is involved in the meaning of words and the names of objects. The right recognizes familiar faces and objects.
The symptoms are different from the memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
These may include; personality changes, such as tactlessness, disinterest in others, and compulsive, repetitive, and unsympathetic movements, such as repeated use of certain phrases, hoarding and control of time, craving unhealthy foods, and forgetfulness of manners in the room table, speech difficulties, including slow speech, grammatical errors, and asking the meaning of familiar words like ‘bread’.
Bruce’s blended family issued a joint statement in late March announcing that he would “walk away from the career that has meant so much to him.”
The statement revealed that he “has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is affecting his cognitive abilities.”
Willis had reportedly been struggling with cognitive issues on the sets of his movies for years, even requiring a headset to hear his lines.
An unnamed source told Page Six that his declining cognitive ability had been an open secret in Hollywood, as the actor repeatedly had trouble acting in his films.

Willis had previously been seen using a headset to feed his lines in his Broadway debut in Misery in 2015, an unnamed source also told OK! Magazine
He also reportedly ran into trouble during filming for the 2019 M. Night Shyamalan movie Glass.
