Pierre Paul and Aline are a retired couple with a busy life living in Baixas, a small village located in Fenouillèdes in the Pyrénées-Orientales. Since the diagnosis was made, the spouses have decided to take the bull by the horns. In this state of mind, they made the bet to live without the disease: "In our lives, we have always had to adapt... It's a new adaptation!" Pierre Paul is therefore Aline's carer, he is a pillar in his wife's daily life and is fighting to find solutions that will help slow down the symptoms of the seventy-year-old. In France, there are as many as 900,000 people with Alzheimer's disease and 225,000 new cases each year. This represents one tenth of the affected population in the world. It causes brain damage and does not only affect patients who suffer from it. Indeed, families are inadvertently impacted and become "Caregivers". The law on the adaptation of society to ageing (ASV) provides for compensation, remuneration, access to training, leave and respite by Decree No. 2018-1325 of 28 December 2018. A progress that has been slow to emerge in our country. Support solutions are offered by associations and specialized health services.
