Being There: Caring for Someone with Alzheimers

Join me tonight, Weds. September 22 at 7pm EST on as I host:

Being There: Caring for Someone with Alzheimers

Encountering Alzheimers as a caretaker will not leave you unchanged. It is one of the most difficult, challenging and life changing diseases to face; not just for the person diagnosed with the disease but also for those who care for them.

During this show I am going to focus on:

– the stages of the disease

– the changing nature of care during those stage

– typical behaviors and how to manage them

– how to increase your ability to communicate with the person

– what to do to best maintain the quality of life for the person with the disease

– how to take care of yourself to avoid burnout, stress, frustration and resentment

The show is scheduled for 2 hours and there is a lot of information to be shared. If we have time, I hope to be able to take some of your calls. The switchboard number is 323 – 843 – 6055. If you cannot listen to the live show you may follow the link after to hear the archived version or find the show on iTunes under the Grace Independent podcast listing.


About cassandratribe

"There are few artists that can do what Cassandra Tribe does. Whether with her poetry, her videos or her blog, Cassandra examines the truths that most of us can never come close to realizing and shows it for what it is, both beautiful and frightening at the same time. She exposes our inner-most workings like the cross-section of a powerful but flawed machine, our gears and springs, nuts and bolts removed and laid out before us. She is a true artist. Her new video, Requiem for a God, is the latest example of Cassandra's willingness to tear open and examine the very things that make us human. Shooting the film entirely by herself, she also eliminates all the little excuses we come up with to keep us from ourselves and our truth. You see, even when she's not trying to be, Cassandra Tribe is a beacon of truth and humanity in this darkest of worlds." (Michael E. Quigg, The Culture Network, June 2009)
