Autism and Alzheimer's Similar Worlds


About this video:

This video was created to raise awareness about the Autism and Alzheimer's. When I started caring for my mom who has Alzheimer's, for the first time in my life I finally understood what my half-sister Kristine's life was like as she cares for her son Marley who has regressive Autism. These two disease are very different and yet at the same time Kristine and I have noticed so many similarities in behavors and situations we have to deal with daily. Being caregivers has brought us closer.
