In 2001, Elizabeth Ojeda’s father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. ‘He was 75 when diagnosed, but he’d had the disease for two years; often sufferers are not be diagnosed for much longer.’ As anyone confronted with the disease knows, its effects are stressful and devastating on patients and families. Elizabeth’s experience was no exception. ‘It’s terribly hard. You watch the person you love losing their memory, their faculties, their mind.’
