Please join us for the third segment in a very special 4 part evening series.  This evening, I will be joined by our guest, Shellie Kermin, caregiver for her mother-in-law with Alzheimer’s, and now a team member of the very first “memory care assisted living” community in Michiana (northwest Indiana.).  

Alzheimer’s changes the caregiver in so many ways.  Some, like Shellie, have found the experience guides them to a new career of helping others understand and find meaning in the care and support of their loved ones during this very challenging time.  Shellie and her family have been walking the journey with her mother-in law for 8 years. 

Shellie gives us a window into the role of the caregiver.  Each loved one and caregiver are unique.  But, we can learn so much by listening to another person’s story against the filter of our own.  We’ll explore the many twists and turns of Shellie’s mother-in-law’s life and of her family…from diagnosis to home care to skilled nursing care.  Walk away with “lessons learned” and perhaps some new insight into your situation.  

During our 30 minute segment, you will be able to submit your questions for Shellie via the web chat or our call-in number.
