Episode 58 – Reclaiming Your Self ~ 11/04/14 ~ Alzheimer’s: A Personal Journey
In today’s world, many struggle with the challenges of Alzheimer’s and a range of other diagnosed dementias. As painful as it may be for the person whose life is stripped of memories of loved ones and cherished moments, those who remain in contact with them experience a different kind of pain – and one that can be debilitating.
Alzheimer’s is a deeply personal and intimate assault on lives long shared and too-quickly forgotten. Join Louise as she engages in conversation with her mother, as they explore her father’s long descent into forgetting. Beyond the care her father requires, this exploration focuses on those who remain; and how to stay enlivened and hopeful in the face of what can become such devastating challenges.
In conversation with: Lorna LeBrun – Grandmother, Mother and loving wife – in candid and open conversation about the challenges of staying connected to her spouse of 65 years, without losing herself. Lorna can be contacted via LornaLeBrun@me.com
