As the number of persons who are diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease or related dementias increases, families will continue to be faced with the challenges, rewards and complexities of giving care to a loved one. In this talk by UBC Nursing Associate Professor Jo-Ann Perry, we will visit some of the experiences of wives, husbands, daughters and sons as they tell their stories during in-depth interviews. In addition, some of the issues that emerge when kin have been placed in long term care facilities will be discussed. (Lecture originally presented as part of Alumni Weekend 2006 on 30-Sep-2006)
