Caring for Loved Ones with Dementia

No one truly understands what you are going through as a dementia caregiver unless they have been, or are, one themselves.

The demands on your time.

The demands on your energy.

The demands on all of your resources.

It’s all so taxing, challenging and exhausting.

Julie Fleming is an attorney who has dedicated her life to helping caregivers with loved ones with dementia because she is one herself. Her father has been under her primary care for years and you will understand the demands it has caused on her time,  her recourses and yes, her life.

In our Living Fully Show interview  (watch the video interview here) she shares her journey of her father’s diagnosis, when he was still in the mid-stages of Alzheimer’s, and how he progressed to where he is now, requiring full-time care from nurses, doctors and care providers.

Watch the interview:

Because of her demanding journey of caregiving for her father with dementia and Alzheimer’s, she created The Purple Sherpa,which has now become a non-profit organization of advocacy and support for those supporting loved ones through their cognitive decline and care requirements.

This Living Fully Show interview is sure to help you understand what you can do now should you have a loved one showing signs of cognitive decline, or should they be in advanced stages, what you can do to support them, and yourself, in their care journey.
