My mother suffered from this horrible disease for several years but the past 5+ were very tough and even contributed to the death of my stepfather. He tried to care for her at home but when this got to be too much, we finally had to place her in a care facility. From this point forward, he would go to be with her for hours every day and his love for her was so great that he would not go on vacations and only missed being with her 2 days until his passing. My mother died within the last year and although I miss her greatly, I almost feel as though it was a blessing so she could stop suffering and has now joined her husband in peace.
