Journey Through Stroke & Dementia


On June 21, 2016, I received the call that changed my life. My brother had a stroke and needed my help. Then my mother showed signs of dementia and also needed help. Come join a discussion of the journey and challenges of becoming an unexpected caregiver, and what I’ve learned about stroke, dementia, and how to deal with taking responsibility for another person’s life and care.
