I really enjoyed the show, I am dealing with my terminally ill father right now who has dementia, but both of his brothers passed away with alzhiemers. It made me realize from the movie how he feels sometimes when he is confused. We the caretakers don't know all the symptoms or the signs. Thank you for explaining in your story about this. I refuse to put my Dad in a facility. He had given me a wonderful like as a child and now it is my turn. I have a nurse come in everyday until I get home. Any words of encouragement would help on the care of my Dad. I love him so much.
