For years, photographer Maggie Steber's mother, Madje, has been coping with Alzheimer's disease. Steber's audio slideshow captures her mother's transition, from fierce independence to uncertainty in the world of assisted-living facilities. Steber describes that journey as accompanying her mother on a ship lost at sea.
A week after her 89th birthday, Madje’s voyage ended in a safe harbor—her daughter’s arms.
