A Lifeline for Dementia Caregivers and Family
My father is in the final stages of his battle with Lewy Body Dementia. Over the past two years, this podcast has been a lifeline as we navigate caring for him and my mother (his caretaker). The interviews with doctors and caregivers provide much-needed medical and practical insight, and Jill’s candid, compassionate approach has been a model for us as we navigate one of the most difficult periods of our lives.
The information Jill shares is so needed in the world today! Every 65 seconds someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and there is no cure! What better way for caregiver’s and healthcare workers to get insights from someone with such experience than through a weekly podcast that touches on all real-world examples of caring for and living with dementia. Thanks, Jill!
