Last Wednesday, March 30, 2016, we were inspired by Dr. Susan Farella-Busch’s most thoughtful discussion on “life with dementia.” You could hear a pin drop in the room of over 70 health care professionals at our Round Table Luncheon at Puglia’s of Garden City.
- She shared her insights of what life is like for a person with dementia and what it is also like for the caregivers.
- She shared stories about her mother who has Alzheimer’s and what it is like for her as a caregiver.
- She shared anecdotes from her family, and the loss of her deeply loved husband last year.
Sometimes, you find yourself in a place where you never thought you would be. We are all getting older and with that we are caregivers; we suffer the loss of loved ones.
