The Caregiver

A Life With Alzheimer's

DAISY - 2007
Rate this:
Alterra made the decision to become the primary caregiver for his wife once she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. He soon discovered that life with an Alzheimer's patient is an ever-changing series of challenges - for instance, his wife lost her ability to walk but not to dance, so husband and wife dance from bed to chair or room to room. He covers the search for understanding, the hallucinations, mood changes, loss of mental and physical functioning, and unpredictable nature of the disease.
