Hope in Caring for Deeply Forgetful People:

Enduring Selfhood and Being Open to Surprises

 

Over the past twenty years, caregivers, professionals, and those affected by

Alzheimer’s disease have hoped that medical science might provide a treatment

that can prevent, stabilize or even cure this progressive and intractable disease;

this treatment has proven highly elusive. Yet there have been major

breakthroughs in forms of care that awaken expressions of continuing self-identity

even in the most deeply forgetful loved ones, and these give us meaning and hope

as caregivers.
