060217 alzheimers couple
Barbara Blum puts a bib on her husband Jack before breakfast in their suburban Atlanta, Ga. apartment on Friday morning, Feb. 17, 2006. Mrs. Blum, 77, has taken on the role of caregiver for her 88-year-old husband, whom a doctor believes has Alzheimer's disease, she said. The four to five hours of sleep she gets each night is sufficient, but the situation might be taking a toll, she said. "I am sure I'm depressed," she said. "I'm not interested in socializing."
