A powerful video created by BuzzFeed shows the heartbreak of the memory-robbing disease through the eyes of a family member.
In "Loving Someone With Alzheimer's," a young woman is forced to deal with her mother's declining memory. The young woman had been avoiding going to her mother's home. But a quick trip to pick something up turns into a chance encounter that changes the way she deals with the disease.
Clearly unsettled when her mother walks in -- and is totally oblivious to her daughter's identity -- the young woman's tough exterior crumbles as she recalls her mother before the disease took over her brain in a flashback to when she was a little girl.
Then, in a tender moment, she introduces herself to her mother as "Someone who loves you very much."
"Love," the film says, "It's never less... it's ever-evolving."
