LISTEN: Hope for the Alzheimer's Journey

LISTEN: Hope for the Alzheimer's Journey

With Carol B. Amos

Caregiving for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia has many challenges, but there are also some surprising joys. Managing your perspective and maintaining a positive mindset can have a tremendous impact on your experience as a caregiver. If you are presently caregiving for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease (or another type of dementia), tune in to gain some important insights, tools, and perspective shifts that you can use to help navigate the journey. Carol B. Amos joins Dr. Andrea Wilkinson to discuss Hope for the Alzheimer's Journey.

Carol B. Amos was thrust into the role of caregiver when her mother began to exhibit memory issues in 2003. The lessons learned during the 11 years is the basis for her passion to help caregivers have a less stressful and more rewarding journey. She shares her advice, tools, and encouragement in her book H.O.P.E. for the Alzheimer’s Journey: Help, Organization, Preparation, and Education for the Road Ahead.
