The founder of Dementia Caregiver Resources, Karen (Karle) Truman, saw her own beloved mother, grandmother, aunts, mother-in-law, and other relatives stricken with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Lewy Body dementia. These are terrible mind-robbing and physical decline disease processes. When her mom started going to an Adult Day Care Center in 1992, she was asked to start a support group for the 40+ families whose Loved Ones also attended. This changed the course of her life, and she then made it her mission and passion to find resources, veterans support, critical services, placement info, grief, and a place to vent all of the caregiver emotions that will bubble up throughout the caregiving journey.
