    Healing Conversations with Mildred Lynn McDonald - Dealing with Dementia

    in Caregiving

    "According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the total number of people with DEMENTIA worldwide in 2015 is estimated at 47.5 million. The total number of new cases of dementia each year worldwide is nearly 7.7 million, implying 1 new case every 4 seconds. The number of people with dementia is expected to increase to 75.6 million in 2030 and 135.5 million in 2050". Think about it. These are BIG numbers and most of us, in one way or another, will be impacted by dementia in our lifetime. 


    To help us to help us understand what these numbers mean to us and our loves ones on a community level, we have invited CATHERINE SHEPHERD, Cape Breton - Education and Outreach, Alzheimer's Society of Nova Scotia, to the table.  


    I first met Catherine about two months ago when my family was trying to deal with a loved one’s diagnosis of dementia. Quite honestly, we were afraid and looking for guidance and support. From the get go, Catherine stepped into the fire, met us where we were, and offered step-by-step guidance, knowledge and reassurance at a time when all three were in short supply.  I was very touched by this timely gift (for she was a gift!) and decided to dedicate this show to helping her share a message of hope, coping and perspective for those on a life altering journey called "dementia". Thank you Catherine for doing this beautiful work!


    WEEKLY ROUND TABLE with HiC Luttmers, John  Carosella and Mildred Lynn: If you could go back in time, what advice would you give to your 20-year-old self in the areas of love, money, health, career and life? Get ready for a fun, energetic discussion!

    The Trail — age 61 — diagnosed dementia?

    in Family

    CareGiverStory, is proud to have as our very special guest, Kevin O'Brien — entrepreneur, filmmaker, son, brother and a caregiver to his father. The moment I spoke with Kevin —I immediately wanted to interview him, and his family to share their amazing story.  About family  love..


    Bio: Born in 1989, Kevin O'Brien enjoyed 20 years in a healthy home, under the wing of his parents Sandra and Michael O'Brien. In 2009, at the age of 61, his father was diagnosed with early onset frontotemporal lobe dementia. As the year passed, Michael's cognition decreased, and the caregiving responsibilities Kevin shared with his brother, Connor O'Brien, and his mother, increased. Those years also saw Kevin graduated CSULB with a degree in Political Science, work four years at the public affairs firm GrassrootsLab, and leap into the entertainment industry with a contractual position at NBCUniversal. Kevin now spends his time looking for his next professional avenue and working to produce The Trail, a short film that seeks to chronicle the period of time between his father's diagnosis and his 5150, a psychotic break that his father experienced, one that required his medication and speed his need for round-the-clock care.
