  1. I have been a caregiver, for 25 years, professionally and personally. For 10 years I have been my Daddy’s caregiver, who is in the moderate to severe stages of Alzheimer’s Disease. Ironically I began working, for an Alzheimer’s Research Company, named LightBridge Healthcare Research, Inc. LightBridge has launched it’s new product, for caregivers, called The Alzheimer’s Caregiver http://www.thealzheimerscaregiver.com.
