    I would like to suggest that you become a volunteer in the memory unit for the Alzheimer's patients. You will be able to see the family members and you can then talk to them about their feelings. Sometimes some family members may not want to talk about it. Or you can become a volunteer for home care and find the family with Alzheimer's patients for your research. Not every family likes to be researched esp. if they are in the middle of the struggle for caregiving. It is very hard to take care of a patient with Alzheimer's. Emotionally it is draining foir the family members. Professionals tend to be able to treat the patients nicely without any emotional burden. But familiy members may have personal mixed emotions with the loved ones. The difference is that it is sometimes too personal.
