It can be heartbreaking to see your grandma tear up when she realizes that it is Christmas day and is devastated by the fact that she has not done any christmas shopping yet.
To see her sitting sweaty on the doorstep after walking over a mile to get to our house in the winter cold, more than once a day. (at least she is getting her exercise!)
To hear her continually insist on going back home (she doesn't have one) to her guests (she doesn't have any) after arriving at our house just a few minutes ago.
Lot's of things are difficult when you love someone with Alzheimer's.
But there are really incredibly clear and funny moments when she is just herself again.
She kind of hams it up for the camera doesn't she?
