Individuals with Alzheimer’s require an increasing level of care as the disease grows progressively worse. Eventually, a person with Alzheimer’s requires assistance with basic self-care activities, such as getting dressed and brushing teeth. Families of individuals with Alzheimer’s often become overwhelmed with the amount of care needed.
Watch this video to hear the story of twin sisters who are caring for their parents, both of whom have Alzheimer’s. Their mother declined much more rapidly than their father, and could no longer recognize her own husband. For these sisters, Alzheimer’s care is a labor of love; however, they readily acknowledge the difficulties associated with intensive care.
