We appreciate and celebrate all caregivers!

We appreciate and celebrate all caregivers!

Today is National Caregiver Day! To mark the occasion, we would like to highlight the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health’s first caregiver, Angie Ruvo.

After visiting myriad doctors in search of an explanation for the changes friends and family had noticed in her husband, Lou, Angie Ruvo met Leon Thal, MD, in San Diego. The renowned researcher put his hand on her shoulder and said, “Mrs. Ruvo, you have a 24-hour-a-day job here. Lou has Alzheimer’s.”

“I’d say Lou, you need professional caregiving help. He said, ‘You’ve been my wife for 50 years. You’re taking care of me,’ ” remembers Mrs. Ruvo.

Along the way, she developed a homegrown caregiver toolkit. When her husband refused to eat, she would say, “ ‘Lou, here comes a choo-choo train. Open your mouth.’ And I’d shove the food in.” Mrs. Ruvo also explains, “He thought I was his mother and I’d say, ‘I’m your wife. You married me,’ but I soon realized it was easier to just go along with whatever he said.”

At the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, “that’s exactly what we tell our caregivers today: ‘Don’t argue, just go with it,’ ” says Lucy Carriere, PhD, the inaugural Angie Ruvo Endowed Caregiving Chair. We provide tools and programs designed to aid patients, caregivers and the community as they navigate the extraordinary challenges of brain disorders.
