Travel and storms

Was in Atlanta and Albany Georgia this week on Alzheimer's business. I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of Caregivers in Albany. The group was really great and so many people came up to me afterwards and shared their stories. It is heartbreaking to hear what everyone has to go through with this disease. I learn so much from them. I appreciate them asking me to come and speak. It always helps me to listen to others that are struggling with the care giving aspect of this terrible disease.

You have probably heard about the awful storms that went through Atlanta last night. They think it was a tornado and the damage is still being assessed. I think they are fortunate there were not any lives lost in the devastation.

I'm still tired from the trip this week. More soon.

My blog is actually about the Atlanta storm!

My name is Kathy, and I am the primary caregiver for my 79 year old Dad who has Alzheimer's disease and lives with me in North Carolina.

I am writing a daily blog on my Alzheimer's caregiver website that shows the lighter side of caring for someone with dementia.

We have also added over 100 pages of resources for caregivers that we have gathered over the three years Dad has lived here.

Please pass this link along to anyone you feel would enjoy it.
