Dementia Ends Up Affecting Almost Every Family – Some Great Advice to Help You Keep Your Cool

I want to talk about dementia today, and how it affects almost all of us in our families at some point. It kind of snuck up on our family and became very real after our mother died a year ago and we started to take care of our father. And I was so grateful to have been exposed to all the Chicken Soup for the Soul stories on this topic because they helped me so much to be prepared, and to have a better idea of how to react. So I’m going to share two my favorite stories with you today, ones that helped me considerably in this new world of caring for an elderly parent. Both of these stories were published in "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Living with Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias."

Start your days with inspiration and motivation from the best of Chicken Soup for the Soul and editor-in-chief Amy Newmark. There's nothing like learning from the personal, revealing stories of other people. Amy shares her favorite stories and the wisdom, advice, and easy-to-implement tips that thousands of people have shared in 25 + years of Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Tips and advice on Mondays and Wednesdays, and interviews with fascinating writers and influencers on Friend Fridays. It’s Chicken Soup for the Soul to go!
