Intersect: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer's Caregiver
Sunday, April 22, 2018, 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Join former Wisconsin Gov. Martin J. Schreiber as he shares lessons from his decade-plus journey as a caregiver for his wife, Elaine, who lives with Alzheimer's disease. Gov. Schreiber will candidly describe his challenges and missteps, and highlight how compassion and humor provide comfort to both caregiver and the person with dementia. His raw honesty and practical advice will inspire other caregivers to find patience, courage and love as they climb the Alzheimer's mountain. Schreiber's book, My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer's Caregiver, will be available for purchase for $10. Gov. Schreiber will sign books following the presentation.
The program is free and open to the community. We will gather for light refreshments at 12:30 pm and the presentation will begin at 1:00 pm.
A freewill offering will be received.
