November is National Family Caregivers Month

Posted on: November 08 2016

November is National Family Caregivers Month   Being a Family Caregiver is hard work. I know this from experience. Family Caregiving is both deeply satisfying and stressful. It can be physically demanding and emotionally draining. You are with a loved one but often feel alone. Then there is the financial piece: this is not a paid position and there are no sick days or health insurance. When providing this unpaid care, your own financial future is at risk since zero contributions are going into social security or a retirement fund.

According to Gallup, the last time even 25 of...

Posted on: September 27 2016

Alzheimer’s in School It’s September - school is back in session and I recently came across a few articles I want to share. The first, from Colorado Public Radio about intergenerational learning where a group of seventh graders in Denver were involved in a service learning project featuring seniors with Alzheimer’s. The second article is within the first one as a link to England’s Intergenerational Schools Project. In 2012, the UK Alzheimer’s Society began working on the Dementia4Schools Project as part of the Prime Minister’s Challenge on...

The End of Alzheimer’s Starts With You and Me

Posted on: September 19 2016

The End Of Alzheimer's Starts With You That is the one of the Alzheimer's Association slogans. Yesterday was the 2016 Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Shelburne, Vermont. The Walk is the Alzheimer’s Association’s largest national event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Vermont Walks were held in Rutland and St. Johnsbury earlier this month; the last one is in Bennington on September 25.   This was my first Walk. As the daughter and former full-time Caregiver to a parent with dementia, I was very moved. It...
