Surprisingly practical

I don’t have anyone close to me living with dementia, but I was surprised to find that the conversations in this podcast touch on aspects of the healthcare system and caregivers much more broadly. Pretty cool to have a show like this in Alberta too.

Keep up the great work!

Listening to you from Montreal. Dementia is my family’s new reality. Little help is available in my native French language and I am grateful for this podcast! It is very insightful. Kudos to you all!
