"...effectively illustrates the importance of making the person with dementia's feelings the top priority. I believe the most valuable message in this video is that people with Alzheimer's Disease are o­nly able to live in the moment, and as caregivers, it is our job to make them as comfortable and happy as possible. I would highly recommend this video to any professional or family caregiver!”
