The Alzheimer’s Podcast:
Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa
Hello, and welcome to episode 61 of The Alzheimer’s Podcast – Your #1 source for practical tips and insights..
I’m Mike Good of Together in This.
Thank you for joining me for another podcast where my goal is always to empower you and your family to maintain a positive experience, reduce and eliminate the need for medications, and make your time together with those you care for, the best it can be.
Last week we talked about driving and dementia and how this loss of independence is a huge deal for the person living with dementia.
In this episode, Christy Turner, The Dementia Sherpa, and I take a deeper look at the loss of independence and how you as a care partner can empower and support your person to remain independent for as long as possible.
