The Wonderful Moment a Mother With Alzheimer’s Disease Remembers Her Daughter

Some videos have need be watched. This is one of those videos.

On Friday, Aug. 29, Kelly Gunderson posted a clip (below) of a conversation with her 87-year-old mom, who has Alzheimer’s disease.

“[My mother] knew who I was, even if just for a moment,” Gunderson wrote on YouTube.

At the :32 mark, you hear Gunderson say, “I love you, Mama.”

“And I love you,” she replies.

“Do you know who I am, though?” Gunderson asks. Then, some wonderfulness happens.

Take a look:



  1. Very touching and tough to watch. My wife’s mother died from complications due to Alzheimers, a hateful disease. A friend told us a story of her dad who had it and when she visited him one day in the Alzheimer’s facility she found him in the open area sitting on the couch. She sat quietly beside him and he noticed her and got excited and said “You’re on our team.” Those fleeting moments of greater clarity or golden. Thanks for sharing, BTG
