When I began my retirement I did not plan on being a caregiver, and I didn't want to know about it. But my mother's friends turned my attention to her need for care.
I realize now how very fortunate I was to learn about the disease from the Alzheimer's Association's caregiver support groups and workshops. The NorthBay Alzheimer's Adult Day Center provided 8 years of respite care and activities extending my mom's quality of life, which ended at age 94.
I started a Unity Walk Team 15 years ago, raising awareness about the need for more local support. I'm enjoying my 10th year as a caregiver support group facilitator. I'm now on the local Congressional Team of advocates, promoting legislation for more research, caregiver support, education and brain health. The past 2 years I've attended the National Alzheimer's Advocacy Forum in Washington, D.C. and visited Congressman John Garamendi's office.
As a follower of Unity principles, I affirm that we are greater than any disease, and I deny any power that disease or illness has over us. And I know there can be more to life than just surviving!
