Presenter: Linda Sendaula
Linda openly admits that when her husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease she was in denial and unable to come to terms with what the diagnosis would mean for her and her family. Her husband was the one who researched and learned all he could about Alzheimer's and what his life would look like living with this disease. At her husband's insistence - Linda finally agreed to discuss the horror of the disease and talk about how they would handle his care as the disease progressed.
In this short video Linda shares her story of how she moved from a reluctant caregiver for her husband to being a "professional" Alzheimer's volunteer.
