adorable cringyness brings back memories @3:54 "who's girl are you" I can still recall going to work with my grandmother on days off from school on the upper west side in manhattan, I would often wonder why this lady was calling my grandma "her GIRL" even though granny had to be 10-15 years older than her.

good for them. if they did this for me when i'm their age, it'll look like skid row; homeless people telling me to stretch my hammies and people who's language i don't know calling out Bingo numbers! oh, and constant iraq/middle east war debates. those are always a pleasure.

Sad to see someone becomes likes this. My grandma had it when I was a young kid, and I didn’t stand at the time what was wrong with her. All I remember was my mom providing care around the clock and struggling with my young siblings. Now with lots of information awareness and support, people in these situations have better quality of life.

The attitude and positive energy of that lady is so precious, and you can tell her family and the support workers at the facility genuinely care so much. It's scary to think of my parents one day developing Alzheimer's since my grandparents all went through it, but I'd want nothing more than for them to be able to reminisce and recall their better times as they struggle through it. It's not a cure, but it'd give me peace to know that they can find comfort in being able to remember something, and that they will always have some of their memories always intact :')

I live with and have lost loved ones with Alzheimers. It is one of two things that always happens. Either people become child like and docile, or they turn really, REALLY mean. I think this is wonderful! I wonder what they will do for the 90’s to make me comfortable, should I need this care?
