Louisville — Lisa Yancey’s mother-in-law, Zelda, 81, has had Alzheimer’s for a decade. When Zelda’s care giving husband died one-and-a-half years ago, Zelda moved into her daughter’s home.
“My husband, Martin’s family has four siblings,” Lisa explained. “We rotate keeping Zelda. Care giving is exhausting, and it gives all of us a break.”
Zelda, as well as Lisa and Martin, a deacon, are members of Highview Baptist Church in Louisville.
