I first became aware of the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease ten years ago when my grandmother was diagnosed with this disease. I saw firsthand how critical it was to have a loving family or caregiver to ensure my grandmother’s safety and daily well-being. My grandmother was fortunate enough to have close family members who cared for her as her Alzheimer’s disease progressed.
