Rick Rayburn became a full-time caregiver to Marianne, his wife of 42 years, after she developed dementia. She may not be the woman he married, but he says she's helping him become a better husband.
I know what he means. As I have become a caregiver to my mother, I have been forced to become a better daughter and more sensitive and humane person. Since I don't know how much time she has left before she won't know who I am, I want her to be happy, just because I have always wanted her to be happy, and then I can remember this time in a good way.
