“I have always been very close to my mum. Watching the center of our family shrivel into a shadow of her former self has been torturous. Hallucinations, incontinence, seizures, and loss of language are all part of Mum’s life now. As a family member, Alzheimer’s Disease makes you feel so out of control.”
