Jann Arden had experienced much in her life, but nothing prepared her for the experience of becoming the primary caregiver for her elderly mother. As Alzheimer’s disease took hold, Arden did her best to deal with the changes to the mother-daughter relationship that she had cherished for so long. While her mom’s health declined, Jann realized that she had to shift gears: no longer was she the child; now she had become the parent.
In “Feeding My Mother,” her bestselling book, the award-winning singer, actor and broadcaster recounted her journey to acceptance of her role, and the inevitability that dementia presents to loved ones.
On this episode of the Parenting Then and Now Podcast, Jann reveals the lessons learned from her care-giving journey and how it changed her life forever.
