My experiences from 9 years as an Alzheimer's caregiver
My wife, Nancy, had Alzheimer's for 9 years, and I was her primary caregiver. I wrote two essays about this experience, the first one dealing with our first 8 years, and the second dealing with the last year before her death (surrounded by her family at home and with the aid of Hospice). The essays can be found here:

I'll be happy to answer any questions.
