Episode 15: Heather Cooper Ortner, President & CEO Alzheimer’s Los Angeles
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia present significant challenges to those living with the disease, their caregivers, and our entire community. All too often, families are stretched to the breaking point as they endeavor to provide care for their loved one with little to no outside help or support. Heather Cooper Ortner joined Alzheimer’s Los Angeles as President & CEO in Fall 2017 and brought along a strong mission: to change the status quo for caregivers. And in three short years that’s just what she has done.
