The Truth Behind A Place for Mom and Caring.com

Don’t Just Age…Successfully Age!

Posted by Brook Dickerson on Aug 24, 2016 10:52:45 AM

Americans are living longer. In fact, the number of people in the 90+ age group has more than tripled over the last three decades according to the US Census Bureau This may be good news to many, but how are we aging?

For 12 years I have worked with individuals and families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia in three states – Arizona, Connecticut, and Tennessee. I have had the opportunity to facilitate groups, as well as visit as a guest presenter. I had that pleasure today to speak with a caregiver support group on the topic of “Sharing the Holidays with Someone with Dementia.” During the meeting a new participant shared his “story” of his wife’s diagnosis and their journey thus far with dementia.

Home Alone: The Risks of Senior Isolation and How to Help

Posted by Brook Dickerson on Sep 25, 2015 2:59:09 PM
