I have found the biggest gift I will ever receive in my life was being able to care for my Mother during her 30-year journey with dementia. Her insights and wisdom shared will never leave me and I made a commitment to her to share her gift to me with others. Alzheimer’s Speaks has several platforms in which we do this: Radio, videos, blog posts, various initiatives like becoming dementia friendly, the Purple Angel Project and the Memory Cafes to name a few. In addition, I travel the nation doing keynotes, training and consulting on dementia as it is my passion to shift caregiving from crisis to comfort.
