At least seven years ago, Marlis DelMain added a new job title to her life: caregiver.

Her husband, LeRoy, was developing Alzheimer's and had diabetes.


"Mainly, you have him on your mind all the time," she said.

The Becker County Caregiver Support Team is planning a winter retreat for caregivers like DelMain on Feb. 15.

LeRoy moved into The Cottages in Emmanuel last summer, but before that, DelMain said her life revolved around being there for her husband.
