If, sooner or later, you need to become a caregiver, you're not alone! Most of us face the same prospect -- including movie stars, political leaders, and other luminaries.

Many have shared their experiences publicly, wishing to help others.

Here are links to several sources and some videos. There's even a link to a movie in the making -- on one actor's experience with his failing dad!

LEARN ABOUT A MOVIE IN THE MAKING

My name is Erich Hover and I am an actor. I worked alongside Brad Pitt in the film “Moneyball” and I’m the middle son of Ed who is stricken with Frontotemporal Dementia. This movie is going to tell my father’s story and my goal is that it will become a vehicle to raise awareness about the disease and provide funding from it’s viewership to help support a cure. 10% of the profits of the film will be donated to Dementia/Alzheimer’s research.

Yes!  I was surprised too, especially by the incidence of dementia.

Amazing how many celebrity caregivers have parents that have/had Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Cancers...  Especially Alzheimer's.    It's everywhere.
