Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver
September 19, 2017 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Join former Wisconsin Gov. Martin J. Schreiber as he shares lessons from his decade-plus journey as a caregiver for his wife, Elaine, who lives with Alzheimer’s disease. Governor Schreiber 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. My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver will be available for purchase for $15. Net proceeds will be used to promote Alzheimer’s caregiver support programs.
