Eva's Story
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size


My name is Eva. I am 72 years old, and I am a caregiver for my 75-year-old husband who has Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. We have been married 55 years and counting. We have six married children, 20 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

These diseases affect our whole family and our good friends. We are lucky that we have lots of support. This support keeps me sane and keeps him trying. I cannot imagine living without my support system. God bless you all.
