Alzheimer society clients, Gaylene and Bill

“Bill was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in the spring of 2014. As his disease progressed, I found myself feeling frustrated, angry, and alone. Attending the support groups through the Alzheimer Society changed my life. I learned that in order to help my husband, I needed to take care of myself, too. Thanks to the education and support I received, I know I gave Bill the best life possible and that means the world to me.” – Gaylene, Alzheimer Society client
