My Mom’s life changed when she learned that she is one of the millions of smart, funny, wonderful women that is afflicted with this horrific disease. I miss my Mom, Joan Neu every day. She’s here, but yet she’s not.
In honor of my Mom and to help other families who search for information, assistance, guidance and empathy, I changed careers ten years ago and am now a Gerontologist, an Advocate and a Geriatric Care Manager and a member of the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement, working to eradicate Alzheimer’s Disease in my lifetime.
