So many families are dealing with crisis of various types. This particular video involves a couple, with a loved one with Alzheimer's Disease. Many families, including my own, are caring for loved one with this disease. It is very difficult to deal with. It is very draining and disheartening to see vibrant people slip away before your very eyes. Alzheimers Disease is just one of many different maladies that can affect families. Regardless of the cause, the impact the disease has on the family as well as the person with the disease is very similar.
The messaging in this video is not so much about having and living with Alzheimer's Disease. It is more about the strength and depth of love of this couple has. It is worth watching to see the best of humanity. Everyone has their limits in what they are actually able to provide a loved one, but that is not the point here. The solid, loving foundation of their relationship is the rock they stand on. Regardless of whether the care is provided by family at home or if the loved one is placed in outside care, it is the commitment, support and love expressed by individuals to each other that is important.
