"Alzheimer’s and dementia have been characterized as persistent, relentless, and undeniably an unforgiving disease. But we, as caregivers, advocates, and support networks have a lot of the same characteristics. We too are persistent, relentless, and undeniably unstoppable. Through information, education, and training my hope is to bring about a sense of strength, power, and confidence in dementia caregivers."
