In this podcast series, people living with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia record audio diaries and conversations about their lives during the pandemic.

Join your host, Debra Sheets, a nursing professor and researcher with the institute on aging and lifelong health at the University of Victoria. In each episode you'll hear intimate and surprising stories about the challenges and rewards of caregiving, the impacts of isolation, finding joy by living in the present, and staying in love when everything else is changing.

We hope this podcast inspires you to make your community a more friendly and supportive place for people with dementia.
