Hi, my name is Molly Wisniewski founder of The Upside to Aging. I started the interview series, "Let's Talk, Aging!" to learn and share the work of influential people and their projects in the field of aging!

Dementia is such a complex diagnosis, but it is my firm belief that everyone should have the opportunity to get to know their loved one living with dementia during this new phase of their life.

Through a series of interviews, we will share how others have handled a dementia diagnosis and what tips and tricks they've learned along the way to ease the experience.

Thank you for listening!
