The original Dear Abby, now living with Alzheimer's disease, once positively impacted millions of lives. Her daughter, the current Dear Abby, shares what her life is like now.

Dear Abby:
Thank you for saying that she changed lives in a positive way. What is it like for her today? My mother is in the last stages of this disease. Her caregivers say that, and she has three full-time caregivers, can’t be alone for a minute. They say that the core of my mother’s personality is very sweet, and it makes it easy to work with her and she is very lovable, but she does not have very much cognition left.
