The Unseen Gifts of Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia – The Greatest of These is Love

Wendy Chanampa has extensive experience – both personally and professionally – caring for people with dementia. Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is a devastating diagnosis – for both the person with dementia as well as the family members who become their caretakers. With the frequency of the diagnosis increasing, any one of us may need to step into the role of caretaker of a parent, spouse, or other loved one. Wendy will help us prepare for and understand this role better by discussing the changes that take place in our loved ones, showing us how we can make a difference through acceptance and gratitude, teaching us how to take care of ourselves, and helping us recognize the unexpected gifts along the way.
