Leslie’s Dad Has Been Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s
One of the most, if not THE most, difficult times of your life is when the roles of child and parent reverse. When your parents health starts to decline and you begin the role of caregiver, or when you face your own mortality with the death of a parent. Leslie's mom passed away a year and a half ago, of Cancer, and now her dad has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. What has been a time of deep sorrow and change, has also become a time of education and growth.
Alzheimer's is unknown territory for all of them and they have many questions. She found this video of children sitting with a women with the disease and asking her questions. The video made her smile and cry a little, but it lead to a better understanding. If you have someone you love battling Alzheimer's, maybe this video will help you too.
The rest of the family is cherishing every moment we have with him.
