- Telling Our Caregiver Stories Alzheimer's Caregivers 1:01:31
Telling our Caregiver stories has many benefits, both for those who listen and for us when we tell them. Learning how others managed their journey as Alzheimer’s caregivers, what suggestions they have for Self-Care, and navigating challenges are essential lessons.
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.
