PSA Transcript:

Caregiver One: Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at 58 years old. 8 years into the disease is when all the lights went out.

Young girl: For me it was heart-wrenching.

Caregiver Two: Looking into the eyes of someone with Alzheimer’s sometimes you just don't see the other person's soul - it's like gone.

Caregiver Three: And it takes a toll on everyone. I mean, it's a depressing disease to watch unfold before your eyes.

Caregiver Four: She actually thought those of us who were caring for her and loved her most were her worst enemies.

Caregiver Five: More and more responsibilities fall on my shoulders.

Caregiver One: This disease just ravages a family.

Caregiver Four: It changes your life.

Caregiver Six: The magnitude of it is indescribable. My mother taught me to be in the moment.

Caregiver Four: We have to live in the moment with them.

Caregiver Seven: And I'm going to be with that person, right now, in this moment, wherever she is.

Caregiver Four: Now is the moment, if we work together, we can stop this epidemic.

Caregiver Six: Contact BrightFocus and learn more.
