Lisa Abeyta has been caring for father who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Although he has lost almost all of his speaking capabilities to the illness, something amazing happens when he’s around their dog.

alzheimers“My father has Alzheimers. This is what happens when he is with our dog,” Lisa says in her notes about the video on YouTube.

In a world that puts so much pressure on people to have a high quality of life, patients with such conditions are often declared less fit to live and enjoy life as the rest of us. It’s nice to see how Lisa’s father has been able to regain some of his ability to celebrate life. May this encourage you to reach out to family, friends or even people you don’t know who are disabled, living in a nursing home, etc.
