Join Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver, as he interviews Ellen Nielsen, a marketing and communications consultant based in Alberta, Canada. She was also a caregiver to two parents with dementia (at the same time). Her parents moved in to care together and were fortunate to share a room until her mother's passing in 2003.
Ellen's caregiving duties included a lot of things she would rather have not done, including theft of a car, and yet she considers herself better and stronger for having done them. Her father passed in 2013, now making Ellen an ex-caregiver, a role which she says is just as challenging to embrace as the original task of becoming a caregiver.
You can find Ellen on facebook at facebook.com/caregiverconnexion - connection spelled with an x in the middle (because everything has to be just a little more complicated for caregivers - thanks Ellen).

THEME: A Spiritual Look at Dementia: Can it contribute to more Harmonious Relationships?
INTERVIEW GUESTS: Rev. Susan J. Henley
Rev. Susan J. Henley is an ordained Minister, Speaker, Certified Spiritual Counselor and author of "Sara, Beyond the Veil: A Spiritual Look at Dementia.” She is also a certified practitioner and member of the American Holistic Medical Association (AHMA).
THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases. Alzheimer’s disease is one form of dementia that gradually gets worse over time. It affects memory, thinking, and behavior. Memory impairment, as well as problems with language, decision-making ability, judgment, and personality, are necessary features for the diagnosis. According to the Alzheimer's Association, More than 5 million Americans are living with the disease....every 67 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer's and Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. There is no cure for Alzheimer’s or Dementia. It gets worse and worse until the patient ultimately dies from the gradual shut down of the brain and all bodily functions. With this being the case, would you want for your loved ones suffering with dementia to advance in harmony with their condition, their relationships and their family? Can a spiritual look at dementia assist in this harmonious advance?
