During one’s youth, it’s hard to fully accept and understand the impact that Alzheimer’s can have on a loved one, but for one young granddaughter, she decided to take another approach with her Grandpa.
Rachel helps take care of her 93-year-old grandpa, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a few years ago. She cooks, cleans and takes her beloved Grandpa for walks. While the decline of his health has been heartbreaking, one day she decided to turn on the music, reach out her hand to him to see if he would take it and dance with her.
Thankfully he did, and the two have been dancing together ever since! Through dancing, Rachel’s Grandpa is revived and his comeback, while short-lived must be so cherished between the two of them! Watch these beautiful moments unfold as they dance to “Cheerleader” by OMI. We all could use a “cheerleader” in life like Rachel! What a precious bond!
