dc.description.abstract In this interview, Wilson Guzmán González reflects on his time taking care of his father, Jaime Guzmán Alvarado, who had cardiovascular dementia. He starts by talking about his childhood and the process of moving from New York to Puerto Rico, where he currently resides. Then Wilson talks about the situation that led to his father’s diagnosis and how it got progressively worse over the years. Taking care of Jaime during Hurricane María, the earthquakes, and Covid was especially hard since only his wife could help him. Later he transitions to his experience in the hospital with his father during the pandemic. He talks about the shortage of nurses during that time and how that led to him having to assist them. Ultimately, Wilson talks about getting Covid and its toll on his physical and mental health. He finishes by emphasizing the importance of taking the virus seriously. en
