Beautiful moment between man with Alzheimer’s and his wife captured in one photo

This post is part of TheBlaze Best Moments, curated by Colin Balfe

“This picture was taken Thanksgiving 2013. My dad is in an Alzheimer hospice center. My mom is in the same nursing home in a different area. They don’t see each other often because it is so hard on my dad. My dad hasn’t known who I am for several years. My brother took this picture of my mom and dad. They have been married 66 years and this picture tells my heart that deep inside, dad still knows who she is. I can’t write more now because each time I see this picture it brings me to tears.”


Glenn talked about this photo on Friday’s radio show:

    My Dad has Alzheimer’s as well. It is awful.

    Thanks for sharing this. They do know us, somewhere deep inside.

    Beautiful picture! My mother had Alzheimers and was in the same assisted living facility as my father. He passed away in October 2012, and then she followed three months later. Although she didn’t seem to know any family, including him, staff told me that she obviously started going downhill after he died. They know!
