Jennifer Fink Podcaster

After helping care for her grandmother who had vascular dementia, Jennifer realized her Mother was showing signs of early onset Alzheimer’s. After the death of her father in 2017 Jennifer went searching for answers to many of the common questions and Alzheimer’s Caregiver faces. Being a busy entrepreneur Jennifer realized that a podcast would be the easiest way to learn more about caregiving while completing other tasks.

Sadly, in late 2017 she only found one and it didn’t quite address what she was looking for, so she did the next best thing, and started her own. The Fading Memories podcast is now in it’s fourth year and despite the death of her Mom in March 2020, Jennifer is still talking to caregivers and still learning how to be an excellent Caregiver. On the podcast she discusses caregiving, brain health, Self-Care and how to age well.

Adria Thompson, Be Light Care Having been part of the Alzheimer's and dementia community for most of my adult life, it's easy to have opinions on specific "treatments." I've seen SLP, OT, and PT therapies work great while the therapist is present with our loved one, then fail once they are gone. My view on these treatments for someone with a dementia-causing disease was, more or less, not to bother. I've seen lots of today's guests' educational social media posts (they're great), so I was pleased when she asked if I would like to chat with her for my show. I challenged her to change my mind, …

The My Data Diary device. Have you ever needed access to a loved one's account and been unable to retrieve the information because you don't have their password? That happened to me when I went to cancel my Dad's cell phone after he died. I had his death certificate handy so I could send it to the phone company, but we never got that far. When I explained the reason for my call, I got sympathies, as you'd expect. However, I had to tell the person on the phone five times that I didn't have his PIN because he was dead. It wasn't the best experience. Thankfully, there are more and more ways to s…

Mace & Travis Macy As fast as we can, as slow as we must, was the mantra that Travis & Mark Macey used while competing in the World's Toughest Race - Fiji. The World's Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji is a multi-day expedition race in which teams race non-stop with little to no sleep over mountains, jungles, and oceans. The twist is the additional teammate they had to contend with; early-onset Alzheimer's. Find Travis Here In this episode, I talk to both men about how they are handling Mark's (also known as Mace) diagnosis, but more importantly, why they decided to do an endurance ra…
