Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you so much for supporting the Alzheimer and Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin by joining the Sauk County Walk on September 15 or by making a donation! Funds raised go toward resources such as memory cafes, educational materials and programs, caregiver support and one on one consultations by outreach specialists. These services provide much needed support to Wisconsin families and residents affected by dementia.
I know from personal experience, arming yourself with information and surrounding yourself with support is crucial to understanding and coping with the daily challenges brought about by this devastating and progressive disease. My dad had Lewey Body Dementia. My mom had Mixed Dementia. Each parent's symptoms and experiences were very different from the other. The Alzheimer blogs I devoured for tips, the Alzheimer Alliance library of online materials about what to expect at various stages of the disease and how to best communicate with a loved one with dementia, the monthly local caregiver support group -all were truly a Godsend in helping me navigate the choppy waters of dementia.
Thank you again for your support. You make a difference.
