Despite the degenerative disease, Alexandra says her mother is “physically fit.” “She’s lovable. There’s no one who hasn’t fallen in love with my mother. She’s patient and kind. She’s not pushy or demanding, and she makes everything easier.”

Alexandra Lencaster says that, due to her mother’s illness, she is currently managing her life “reasonably” in terms of everything. “It’s good for our hearts. There has to be a lot of passion and dedication in these times. Sometimes I have to undo myself, like I did with my daughters. This is what you do for those you love. Everything is done with love and is always done well and with love.” ”

At first, the actress’s daughters, Catarina and Margarida, were a little afraid of the disease, but now they have become accustomed to it and have become an important force in support of their mother and grandmother. “They sit next to her and watch old cartoons. That’s how they relate to her,” describes Alexandra Lencaster.
