Can You Get Your Loved One to Sing this Song on Thanksgiving?

We care every day. It isn't always easy, but we give of ourselves selflessly all year round. For this we should be proud. Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks. So on this day, I say thanks to all of the Alzheimer's caregivers around the world - You are accomplishing more each day than those around you might be imaging.
