For a couple of years I had been trying to get my husband's doctor to listen to me and tell me why George was lethargic and losing interest in socializing with friends and family. All he wanted to do was lie on the couch and watch TV. I would rub his feet and ankles and knees for hours on end.

I was an intern during my work for my Social Work major in college at Sunlight Senior Center in Northridge, C.A. We worked with many seniors with Alzheimers and other forms of dymentia. It was one of the best jobs that I've ever had, the seniors loved us and we loved the seniors. Unfortunately, the center was closed due to funding and the family members had to find other arriangements for the seniors who could not be left at home alone.

My mother was an active widow who retired from teaching with thoughts of painting and traveling before dementia took over.  Her husband passed away and she fought through that, never letting her spirits drop.  Her love of life always shining through.  Alzheimer's has stripped those dreams away and now her days are spent battling a disease that is cruel in every since of the word.  For those reading this please support our efforts to end those disease so others can live their dreams and let life continue to shine through.
