Dotty Stars in the the New Pajamas

My mother Dorothy DeMarco is 94 years old. She suffers from Alzheimer's disease. She was officially diagnosed in 2004. My name is Bob DeMarco. I am Dotty's son and a full time Alzheimer's caregiver. Dotty and I live our lives one day at a time.

Dotty and the
Georgia Bulldog
During 2003 and 2004 Dotty was meaner than "a junkyard bulldog". I decided something had to change. I embarked on a mission that continues to this day -- I decided we would live our life to the fullest; and that, I would change the "ugliness" into a thing of beauty.

The goal of the typical Alzheimer's caregiver is to live the highest quality of life as possible along with their Alzheimer's patient. We strive to do this each and every day. We do it one day at a time.

As you will see in this short movie Dotty is now as sweet as a Georgia peach.
