How to Support a Family Member on Their Journey with Alzheimer’s

Lately I’ve been sharing more and more about my Mama’s journey with Alzheimer’s and how heartbreaking and difficult this experience has been for myself, for my family, and for my Mama.

Throughout this journey, I’ve experienced many ups and downs, and recently in the midst of a particularly hard moment, I decided that I wanted to raise more awareness about this terminal disease. Since I’ve started sharing, so many people have reached out to share their own experiences with loved ones, and one question that I received really resonated with me. It was from a person who just learned that their father has Alzheimer’s, and they wrote to me: I’m so scared. Do you have any advice for me?

After giving my answer a lot of thought, I decided to record this video. In it I share some of the things I’ve been doing to support Mama Bhasin on her journey and some reflections on my own experiences navigating the difficult emotions and grief that come with this journey.

I hope that these tips are helpful in providing some small guidance, support, and peace for any of you who are also on a journey through Alzheimer’s. And I hope you know that you are not alone, and I’m sending you so much light and love.
