Caring for a loved one with a debilitating disease such as Alzheimer’s is an extremely difficult situation, but when you can’t easily jump in a car and put your eyes on them to ensure their well-being, it goes to a whole other level of complexity.
As a long-distance caregiver herself, Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, can empathize with others who are also caring for a loved one from afar.
In case you’re new, Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, is a regular guest here on The Alzheimer’s Podcast.
She is a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Certified Dementia Care Unit Manager, and Cognitive Stimulation Instructor. She has run award-winning memory care communities in assisted living and skilled nursing levels of care.
