The intention of this podcast is to take the fear and stigma out of Alzheimer's and related Dementia.My belief is if I can survive this terrible disease as a primary CareGiver so can you and I will show you how! We will have experts, experiences, and teachings to give a solid base in the understanding. I have been where you are and I know and empathize with the struggle to remain positive in what is usually a dark situation. We will talk about silver linings, living in the moment, looking to feelings rather than brain for answers. Our well being is dependent on our ability to interact with those who have Alzheimer's or a related Dementia. This disease has touched many many lives from millennial's to those in their 60's, 70's and 80's.
