I have worked with caregivers for persons living with dementia for almost 20 years as a family physician/geriatrician at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center. I always am awe-struck at the transcendence caregivers go through during their journey supporting persons living with dementia. The dedication caregivers show in recognizing the “human-ness” in their loved ones always humbles me.
