“There's caregivers, that they don’t get that break until 3 o’clock in the morning, but guess what we're there, Christmas, New Year's we're still there.""I know what its like to have a family member with Alzheimer’s disease. I know what my family went though. Often times its hard to know what might be the right steps to take.”
“People need to talk to other people who get it and that’s where I think a helpline can really help.”
–video The Alzheimer's Association 24/7 Helpline Illinois Chapter.
