“My husband had been in dementia for several years. During this time I have devised mind, body, spirit programs for him that consider his ever-changing condition. It has prolonged his memory, understanding, quality of life and made him feel relevant. The incredible care and attention he has received at the Motion Picture Home has had a tremendous effect on his quality of life and their caregivers have become a part of the family. He just turned 89 and we are on our way to Maui for a celebration of his life in a place he loves. A vacation filled with affection, touching and loving care so he can enjoy each day. That’s what’s important to us – “family” to the end. I am committed to helping support Alzheimer’s research that could have effects on my family and so many others.”
