BONILL DE LAS NIEVES, Candela. To live from hand to mouth: Carmen´s experience, taking care of her husband diseased of Alzheimer. Index Enferm [online]. 2006, vol.15, n.52-53, pp.64-68. ISSN 1699-5988.

By means of the biographic report, we can observe and understand better the experience of people in the face of  health and disease conditions. We come up with Carmen´s report, who shares her life experience with us as caregiver of her husband since he began with the Alzheimer disease 11 years ago. She report to us how was the method toward the diagnosis, her ceaseless research of information, how she faced the disease and the appearance of a new complication, the loss of autonomy, the family and friends support, economics problems and of course, the future.
