1. The Long Goodbye – A Musical Tribute Alzheimer's Caregivers 1:07:55

The Long Goodbye – is a musical tribute based on Brets Dads ‘ Alzheimer’s journey.
 

The long goodbye, it’s something that all of us have dealt with. Some of you are probably still working your way through this goodbye. Today’s guest is Bret Sweet. He’s a musician turned Caregiver who used writing music to help him through his grieving process even as his father was still alive.

Bret decided to use a hip-hop album to help caregivers draw energy from and gain a sense of connection with other caregivers. His Dad was all about breaking down doors, standing up to bullies, and Bret’s album helps continue that story. Bret also wanted to add a little hope for those of us listening.

Enjoy this video from Fog On The Bridge (yes, that’s the Golden Gate Bridge, from my area of the world).

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.
