“Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver”
Former Wisconsin Gov. Martin J. Schreiber will share lessons from his decade-plus journey as a caregiver for his wife, Elaine, who lives with Alzheimer’s disease.
Gov. Schreiber, author of My Two Elaines: Leaning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver, will candidly describe his challenges and missteps, and highlight how compassion and humor provide comfort to both caregiver and the person with dementia.
His raw honesty and practical advice will inspire other caregivers to find patience, courage, and love as they climb the Alzheimer’s mountain.
