Care Giver

Last week I spent an afternoon with Jean Alexander, who has been caring for her husband, Carl, full time since 2004. Carl has advanced Parkinson's disease and dementia and is totally dependent on Jean. Last Monday he was placed, for the second time, in hospice at their home in Grass Lake. Jean is a truly remarkable woman. Her life has been caring for Carl, and she loves him deeply. The passion she shows in her constant care and selfless attention for him is amazing, and I feel lucky I was able to share the afternoon with them.
