Moira and Jack did not know each other; however, they share a common bond. Each is living with a spouse who has Alzheimer’s, and each reached out to the Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin for help. “I couldn’t do it alone anymore,” said Jack. With the help of the Alliance, Moira is managing to juggle three lives – professional woman, wife of a husband with Alzheimer’s, and mother to their active 11-year-old son.
On this program, Jack, Moira, and 11-year-old Henry share their stories. They are joined by Pat Wilson and Ingrid Kundinger who describe the support they have provided to them and other individuals and families impacted by Alzheimer’s through the Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin.
Then – hear more stories of hope and support at the ADAW’s spring fundraising event, AN EVENING TO REMEMBER, Friday, April 1, at The Edgewater.
