Dotty and Harvey the Parrot Discuss Breakfast

By +Bob DeMarco 
+Alzheimer's Reading Room

Dotty is 94 years old and suffers from Alzheimer's disease. Harvey is a repeat parrot and right now is Dotty's best friend.

Harvey is also one of the 15 million Alzheimer's caregivers.

Dotty spends about two hours a day with Harvey. Harvey is very good at getting information out of Dotty. For example, she might tell him she has a "splitting headache". Most Alzheimer's patients are not very good at communicating this kind of information.

Enjoy the short video. Your comments and observations are always welcome here.
