Mary Ann Thyken gets home from work, her second shift begins.
She cares for her mother, Peggy, who no longer recognizes her.
Mary Ann's mother has Alzheimer's Disease and has lived with her
daughter for the last four years. Today Mary Ann employs paid
caregivers twelve hours a day and has returned to her career.
Peggy's care is now a two-person job. Mary Ann has said, "I stopped
working for three years and that was difficult to give up, but
at the same time, I honestly thought that this was more important."
