Who We Are!

office_school_paper_pencilAre you a caregiver for a loved one (caree) with something that falls under the dementia umbrella, whether it’s MCI, Alzheimer’s, LBD, FTD, or some other strange set of initials? Each one of our carees has a rich, incredible history with a story to be shared.

I’m interested in knowing if you’d like to write their story and together we will publish all the stories in an e-book, self-published book, or both. You choose what part of their story to tell. It could be about their childhood, your courtship, their career, or any other story you decide to share.

Proceeds from the sale of the book could be donated to an organization or organizations voted on by the contributors.

I don’t have any timing in mind yet for this, but would like to know if you are interested in participating and sharing your loved one’s story.  I sent out an e-mail about this yesterday, and so far have heard back from five people who want to participate!

Won’t you join us? :)

About G-J

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.

      Wonderful! I have set up a group here on caregiving.com and will find time in the next couple of days to send out invitations to join the group.

    Got the invitation in the mail tonight but the link wouldn’t work. Looking forward to joining the group.
    Thank you so much for the invite.
