Our first guest is Laurie Scherrer who was diagnosed at age 55, with Early Onset Alzheimer’s and FTD (Frontotemporal Dementia), thus ending her career in sales and service. Recently, Laurie and her husband, Roy made a series of videos on Sign Language for PWD (Persons With Dementia). The videos are designed for PWD and their care partner to learn 19 signs that would be recognized by any American Sign Language interpreter. They are meant to provide PWD with a visual form of communication when their verbal skills are weak. Seven videos are available at dementiamentors.org or on Laurie’s Website DementiaDaze.com.
Our second guest is Mary Ann Andrews is the inventor of the PillRite pill management system. She was inspired to create the PillRite because of her own frustrations with managing her medications and staying adherent. Initially her direction was to solve medication management for patients but soon found out that through much feedback that PillRite was a useful tool for caregivers.
