Caregiver / Campañera

In 2011 my mom, Cindy, brought my grandparents from their Texas home to Michigan to care for them as they faced the beginning stages of Alzheimer's Disease and dementia.
Many caregivers are partners or children of affected individuals and the Alzheimer's Association estimates that in 2015 caregivers provided over 18 billion hours of unpaid care to those suffering from Alzheimer’s and other dementias. This series documents the daily struggle and care she gives to them both.
