1. Doggies 4 Dementia (eliminating Stigma, Providing Memories) Alzheimer's Caregivers 1:03:45

As a professional photographer, it was important to me to preserve memories with beautiful family portraits. I was a photographer long enough that I had clients die, and trust me, no one was sorry they had some lovely photographs. I was excited to connect with Carmen of the Doggies for Dementia Foundation finally.

They create portraits for families experiencing Dementia. Their goal is to provide beautiful memories and also to raise awareness. They do this by sharing the images that they create on their social media channels, blog, and in their emails. Doggies for Dementia strives to raise awareness to reduce stigma, isolation, and loneliness. Experts Dig in with Doggies for Dementia is a playlist on our YouTube channel (Doggies for Dementia Foundation); This is where we have candid conversations with experts, including family members and professionals.

Tune in now to hear two photographer-dementia daughters talk about this fantastic endeavor. Then check out their website. https://doggiesfordementia.org

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.
