Join us as we talk with Cindy Weinstein, author and English professor, about her experience with her father's Alzheimer's diagnosis, as a distant caregiver and her new book.
Cindy's goal in writing her book, Finding the Right Words, was to equip readers with knowledge by sharing terms, basic neurology, graphs and images weaved throughout her story of her family's journey with her father's diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease.
In this episode, we talk about:
Cindy's inside view into neurology and dementia as a student
Depression and dementia
The importance of supporting family caregivers
The importance of sharing your story with your doctor or neurologist
How she forgot that her father was dying as her life adjusted to being a distance caregiver
I host a weekly podcast where I interview dementia specialists and other professionals to help caregivers feel educated, supported, and empowered.
We talk about a variety of topics including how to live your best life as a caregiver, how to work with challenges that may arise, and how to gain knowledge so you can be your own best advocate.
