"Saluting Courage", a patient-carer relationship's case from ARDSI Calcutta. India.

‎"Saluting courage" by Nilanjana Maulik, ARDSI Calcutta, India in the Alzheimer's Disease International Newsletter, Dec 2011, vol. 21, n°4.

"Shefali Chaudhuri, the mother, is 93 and a demonstration of courage against all odds. In many ways her life began at 75 when she learned that her daughter had Alzheimer’s.

However, she found a way to convey hope, optimism, reassurance, dignity and respect for her daughter as well as for all of us. I have known her for the past 13 years and seen her do the impossible care – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. I have seen her intense concern for her daughter and unstinting generosity with her time."
