A viral video on TikTok shares the heartache and joy of caring for those with Alzheimer's.
Watching a loved one’s mental health diminish through dementia is extremely difficult. Witnessing the awareness of those close to you slowly fade away is extremely painful for all involved.
One TikTok user named JoshPet has created reels about his mom with Alzheimer’s that are not only heartbreaking, but also insightful. Thanks to his videos, we get to see the daily struggles of living with dementia, as well as the joys that can be had in supporting those in need. And most importantly, we witness the unbreakable bond of a son who just wants to love and care for his mother.
One video in particular of 84-year-old Betty really humanizes her, and shows the effects of Alzheimer’s.
