As I mentioned in my last episode, where I shared my interview with David Kramer, it’s extremely important invaluable that we listen to and learn from those who are living with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia.
People with dementia know what is needed to help them fight back against this cruel disease.
To help spread their message, I’m continuing to share some interviews I did a couple of years ago.
In August of 2015, I had a wonderful conversation with Laurie Scherrer where she talked about how she and her husband Roy work 1 day at a time to implement strategies which allow them to stay active and enjoy life.
I was pretty green when it came to recording quality audio, so I’ve done my best to improve this recording so that you get the best experience possible.
However, there may still be some parts that have less than stellar quality but I truly believe you will find it acceptable and the content invaluable.
In August of 2013, Laurie Scherrer was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s and Frontotemporal Dementia at the early age of 55.
Laurie is an active dementia advocate and runs the website dementiadaze.com.
She’s also staying physically and socially active as her and her husband Roy fight back against dementia. In fact, at the time of this interview they had recently returned from a diving trip to Bonaire which is an island in the southern Caribbean.
In this episode, we talk about how Laurie stays active and Lives Positively despite her dementia.
Take care and I look forward to talking with you in the next episode.
