As Alzheimer's disease progresses over time, the caregiver is often confronted with an ever-expanding list of needs that must be addressed and the process can be physically and emotionally exhausting. In our next story we will meet Jo Ann Weekly who is caring for her husband Ronald while trying to deal with health problems of her own. Jo Ann is herself getting frail and can no longer do everything for Ronald as she once did. Despite that, she is determined to keep him out of the nursing home. Jo Ann reached out for help and discovered a rather novel solution. It's not perfect, but it seems to be working for now.
