Kathy's Story: Diagnosing a sleep disorder

An Alzheimer's story

Hank and his wife, Dot, have been together for 63 years. He began noticing small changes in her behavior, such as her sudden lost of interest in reading, a favorite hobby. In 2007, she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and Hank has dedicated his life to caring for her.

"I've got a job, and that's fine with me. I want my wife around just as long as it can be. I've never had a friend better than my wife, and she still is," Hank says.
