Alzheimer’s is a debilitating and slow disease. Loved ones can spend years watching their spouses, partners, or parents fade into the Alzheimer’s abyss. Those afflicted suffer memory loss, many times robbed of their ability to recognize those most dear to them, sometimes becoming fearful or even volatile.
An estimated 5.4 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease in 2016, so it’s no surprise that this video of a mother suffering from Alzheimer’s and her daughter sharing a tender moment has inspired many on Facebook and social media outlets with comments such as: “This reminds me of many conversations I had with my own Mumma. She had Alzheimers but she still let me know she loved me in the sweetest ways. I have been watching this clip over and over and showing people that this was the kind of mother I had.”
