Letting someone else take care of you can change everything. Three stories of couples in which one partner is trying to take care of the other, sometimes with more resistance, sometimes with less.
- Jo Giese's husband, a doctor named Douglas Forde, had spent his life caring for other people. But then he had some strokes and developed a kind of dementia. He didn't understand why caregivers were living in his home, helping his wife. Over the course of eight months, his wife documented his decline, and the dramas that happened with the people who came to live with them. Jo Giese usually reports for Marketplace. (28 minutes)
