Jacob from Wisconsin

Hi my name is Jacob. I have been taking care of both my parents for a little over 2 years now. They both have Alzheimers. Sam and Sarah, my parents are the most wonderful people in the world a great sense of humor and are very caring. It's a live in situation now. So it's full time with them. But I enjoy every moment of it. I help with their meals, medication, grocery visits. And other small tasks around the house. The best part of taking care of my parents is the great stories and memories. I love my beloved parents. They mean the world to me.
