Show Notes

"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory." -Dr. Seuss

Do you have a loved one who is suffering from Alzheimer's or Dementia? Do you know someone who is caring for someone with Alzheimer's/Dementia? I hear people talk about cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other terminal illnesses but rarely do people talk about the number memory stiller Alzheimer's. 
Today I am joined by a special guest Emily Rosenberger Constituent Events Manager for the Alzheimer's Association. We have a real conversation about some of the difficulties that face families from expenses, lack of resources, and support.
This disease affects millions of Americans sometimes we do not know where to go to get the resources we need. The Alzheimer's Association makes it so easy for you to find everything you need in one place. 

  • Learn the 10 signs of Alzheimer's 
  • Connect with 24/7 support to answer questions about what to expect  during a first appointment
  • Learn about resources available to support you as a caregiver
  • Connect with others with similar experiences 
  • Volunteer or make a donation to help support the cause

You can find these resources as well as ways you can support others by going to https://www.alz.org/ or https://www.alz.org/thelongestday
