More than 16 million people care for someone with dementia, and many millions more worldwide. In part three of our series “Rethinking Dementia,” we talk with Nancy McLarty, nurse executive, wife, mother, and caregiver of her husband Jim, who has Binswanger’s disease, a rare form of dementia. Nancy tells the story of hearing dementia in Jim’s diagnosis and how his illness has impacted their relationship. In addition, Nancy offers sage advice on the vital legal, medical, and financial steps caregivers must take, how she manages daily tasks and the remarkable gift that comes from contributing to her husband’s quality of life.
