The Tenderness of Eldercare


How aging caregivers are putting their self-care first.

In 2019, Dan Gasby, the husband of fashion guru and restaurateur B. Smith, made a public announcement in The Washington Post: While he, a Black man, remained devoted to his Black wife, who was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s in 2013, he was also in a committed relationship with another woman, Alex Lerner, who is white. 

“If This Is Us and Modern Family came together, it would be us,” Gasby told TheWashington Post. Gasby’s daughter, Dana, agreed, telling The Washington Postthat she’s glad her father met Lerner. “When he told me, I was like, Thank God. I’m happy,” she said.
