It’s about the full time caregiver Jack #ENDALZ 

Think about swimming 5 miles in rough seas. Now think about swimming 5 miles in rough seas with one arm and one leg. 

Watching someone you love slip away is tough on anyone. Watching someone you love slip away and not being able to get respite, as a caregiver, may be similar to that. 

What amazes me is the lack of conversations about what you see in the trenches with alzheimer’s. The incontinence, violence, family breakups, caregivers dying before their patient and the disappearance of financial assets. 

If we are going to have doors opened for us to speak, let us tell what millions of caregivers, mostly women, are going through.
