Video: Dad with Alzheimer’s Finds His Voice with the Family Dog


Here is a beautiful video posted to reddit yesterday by Lisa Abeyta, showing her dad interacting with the family dog. There’s really nothing remarkable about the video until you know the context—that the elderly gentleman suffers from Alzheimers disease and has lost the power of speech. That is, until he’s with the dog. Remarkable and moving stuff. . .

  1. Lisa thank you for sharing this. My mom passed away a year ago from affects of Alzheimers. This really choked me up, just remembering how much I miss talking to her. Even if she didn’t make sense or know who we were. Enjoy your dad. This was beautiful.
