An elderly woman with Alzheimers got to spend some quality time with her son. He agreed to her request to drive fast around the block amid the lockdown.
Hendrika lives in the Central Coast, Australia. She has Alzheimers disease. According the Shareably report, it is “a type of dementia that causes problems with a person’s memory, thinking, and behavior. It develops slowly and gets worse overtime.” The disease affects many elderly people across the globe. Despite old age, the disease causes many to act like a child.
A Son’s Love For Her Mom With Alzheimers
Now, this is the case of the 87-year-old mother, Hendrika. Amazingly, she has a son who spends time with her even amidst the pandemic crisis where people are told to stay indoors.
In the video posted on April 29, Jason, Hendrika’s sweet son gave in to his mother’s innocent request. He agreed to drive her around the streets of Central Coast, Australia.
Jason asked her, “You wanna’ go again?”
“Yes!” the sweet woman enthusiastically replied.
And when he stepped on the gas, Hendrika mimicked the growl of the engine like a child. Her son let out a small laugh of his mother’s delight.
Then once again, he asked her, “Do you want to go fast? You ready?”
She imitated the powerful engine’s sound again. The expression on her face shows how much she loves the fast drive.
Although the fairly new video has only one comment, it surely speaks volumes about a son doing the extra mile for his mother.
“What a beautiful soul you are, she is having the time of her life and it’s all due to a simple act. May God bless you both and keep you safe,” wrote Brian Ellison.
