The Lady in the Chair Has Alzheimer’s Disease. Watch What Happens When the Other Lady Sings to Her.
Alzheimer’s disease is a devastating illness, one that often leaves the patient isolated in a world of her own and friends and family members at a loss as to how to reach her. While it can seem like the disease takes away absolutely everything, it doesn’t take away love— especially the love that knows no arbitrary, artificial boundaries. We’ve never seen anything that demonstrates the power of love to connect everybody than this video of Naomi, the Jewish founder of Validation Therapy, reaching through to Gladys, a Christian Alzheimer’s patient, by singing the hymns Gladys has treasured since childhood. Everyone Matters shares the incredible video.
