Meet Them Where They Are

Sarah and Robert B. Schaefer

In this “Alzheimer’s: The Caregiver’s Perspective” web short, Robert B. Schaefer shares some insights as a caregiver for his wife, Sarah. He says that people with Alzheimer’s "...are in a different world then you are at this point. They’re in the world of Alzheimer’s and it’s up to us as a care partners to try and get into their world and figure out where they are and then treat them on the basis of that rather than treating them on the basis of our world.”
