I’m Mike Good of Together in This
My goal is always to empower you and your family to maintain a positive experience, reduce and eliminate the need for unnecessary medications, and make your time together with those you care for, the best it can be.
As dementia care partners, our focus is usually on our person. Although we’re a crucial part of the equation in a process that can last up to 20 years or more, we often get lost in the shuffle.
People and circumstances change over the years, including for us. That means we’ll go through transitions, too. Circumstances can change. The unexpected can happen. What will you do?
In this episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa, Christy and I discuss some common life transitions as well as some unexpected ones and why thinking about all this now is a good idea; plus circumstances when you’re just not that into being a care partner; and we wrap up it all up with a big announcement.
