    Enlightening

    My mom has Alzheimer's and my sister is the care-giver. I read the book by David Shenk and saw the broadcast of the documentary. It certainly helps to legitimize the disease and help those caring for a loved one to understand, to some extent, what is happening. This should be in the Tool box of all care-givers. I am ordering the DVD for my sister to view when she faces difficult moments.
