Taking care of a loved one with Alzheimer's
If many reports focus on the sick, few highlight the caregivers, these relatives standing in for professional nurses, allowing their husband, wife, father or mother suffering from loss of autonomy to remain at home.
Marthe is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Her husband, Ivan, takes care of her every day. Every Wednesday afternoon, they go to the restaurant, which is their weekly outing. Every day, Ivan allows himself a one-hour walk in the old city of Strasbourg, France, where he lives with his wife.
