Rachel's grandfather is 93 years old and suffers from Alzheimer's, despite which he remains cheerful, full of vitality and eager to enjoy life at all times.


To make her grandfather happy, Rachel does everything possible to encourage and pamper him. On this occasion she invited him to dance and together they enjoyed an incredible family moment.

Although she was aware that his grandfather had talent to dance during his youth, she was surprised to see that he retains dancer skills at 93 years of age. In the YouTube video, he sees Rachel turn on the music and invites him to join her for a dance piece.

The magic begins when the grandfather's face lights up immediately. Because despite the fact that the old man unfortunately suffers from Alzheimer's, he does not stop enjoying the simple things of life that makes every day beautiful and valuable.
