Living with Alzheimer

Janet and Orlando are sharing their home with their Grandma Maria. She is 96 years old and has Alzheimer. When I visisted this little family in Salta, Maria asked me a 1000 times:“ Dedonde eres, hijo?“ And she told me a 1000 times: „Yo soy de Chile, de ChiuChiu.“ Janet and Orlando never let Maria alone, it is too dangerous. Once she climbed up the stairs and fell.
What, if Maria is not able to stand up by herself any more, to walk, to eat?
Janet and Orlando do not know yet and they feel scared, thinking of it.
