Husband Lovingly Helps Wife With Alzheimer's Eat At Restaurant

Love conquers all...but a free meal can also be a big boost! Emerson Evelhoch, going out to eat with his wife, Kathy, eats out frequently. "She's always been a good cook, enjoyed cooking," Evelhoch, of North Middleton Township, PA said in an interview with a local TV station.

However, dining out became more frequent for the couple almost eight years ago.

Evelhoch explains "Her last job was working at the high school library, and she couldn't put two journals in order and that's when we start pursuing the disease."

The doctor’s said Kathy had early-onset Alzheimer's at the age of 56.

"She's always been my best friend. She still is. I still tell her things," Evelhoch noted.

Chen's Asian Restaurant in Carlisle is one of their regular dining spots.

"They were sitting right here and then there's another couple sitting on the other side," restaurant owner Jay Chen commented.

"The husband was cutting every piece of the meat in small pieces so he could feed her by fork. It was very touching," Chen said.

The best was saved for last, and we’re not just talking dessert. "The server came over a little bit later with the receipt with a note on it," Evelhoch said.

The couple sitting next to the Evelhochs had sent the note, which said they noticed Emerson's love for Kathy and that they were paying for their meal.

"Life is stressful. This is stressful. It was the perfect time for me to just stop and take a breath and remember how many nice people there are," Evelhoch expressed his gratitude for the gesture.
