Alzheimer's Speaks is sadden with the loss of one of it's experts living with dementia. On April 1st, 2015, Dena Dotson planned to leave this world in hopes of a better life. Although everyone may not agree with her decision, it is important for us to honor her work and advocacy to improve the lives of others living with dementia. We will not judge her decision but accept the fact that none of us can really know what decision we would make if to walk in her shoes.
Today Dena no longer suffers from the symptoms of dementia which made her life unbearable. Today we will celebrate the gifts she gave us while here and grieve her loss together as a community.
If you are unable to join the conversation live, but would like a statement read please email Lori La Bey.
Everyone is welcome to join the conversation.
There is one rule for this show:
Everyone is to be respectful to Dena and her family. There will be no tolerance for anything less. We can and will debate the issue of life and death choice with dementia at a more appropriate time.
