The actress spent her final years in New York City. Her youngest child, Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, has since founded the annual Rita Hayworth Gala through the Alzheimer’s Association to keep her mother’s legacy alive, all while raising funds to support studying the disease in hopes of finding a cure.

Khan became Hayworth’s conservator in 1981. She brought her mother to New York City and lived next door to her with the help of nursing care.

It was something natural,” Khan told 福克斯新闻 在 2018. “She was so sweet and loving. My motherly instincts just took over. It was a natural thing for me to help her and go through this with her.

During her final years, Hayworth pursued her passions for oil painting, playing the castanets and golfing. But with no cure for Alzheimer’s, the disease progressed.

From the middle stage to the end, it took about maybe 4-5 年份,” said Khan. “When she was near death… I called in the priest for her last rites. And then she lived another two years. Her heart was so strong, but she really didn’t recognize anyone. It was a slow decline. She had wonderful care.

She was right next door, right next to me. I could go in and talk to her in her ear. I always felt like I had to communicate. Maybe somewhere she would hear me. And then my son was born in 1985. I would bring him in and talk to her. I wasn’t sure if she knew or not, but I thought it was important to be there and share because one never knows.

The crusade continues for Khan.

Just having the experience of a loved one with the disease, and seeing the decline and knowing so many people have [它]… That motivates me,” said Khan. “I’m hoping that we find the answers in my lifetime. … That’s been my motivation. We need to find a cure.

And the memories of living – and loving Hayworth – have simply never left Khan.

She was just the most wonderful mother,” said Khan. “She loved working with Fred Astaire — she would talk about working with him… She introduced tennis and golf to me. And she loved her work. I knew she was famous, but she was my mom, a regular mom. … It’s a sad story. It’s a sad disease.
