Welcome to Caregiving.com. I began caring for my husband, in his late 50’s, when he was diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) in December 2009. My husband was put on disability and has had to retire because of this. We have a son in high school. The three of us continue to lead very active lives and refuse to let this change our lives. You can read my blog here.
I am a caregiver for my 59-year-old husband, Steve, who was diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment in December 2009. His employer put him on disability and he had to retire one year later when he couldn't return to work. I am also the mother to our son who is now a high school senior. We have a cat, Sagwa, who rounds out our family. In addition to blogging here, I volunteer at my son's high school in the scholarship office, teach a class I created called, "Keep Your Brain Buff" at our city's Senior Center, lead a writing group at the Alzheimer's Association, and advocate for people with all types of dementia. In November, I will be participating in my third Walk to End Alzheimer's.
