My hat's off to Alice and Rudy, two Heroes who shared their stories during a roundtable discussion for the National Family Caregivers Association (NFCA; www.thefamilycaregiver.org) and Forest Labs on a project for Alzheimer’s disease caregivers. NFCA is a non-profit organization that provides education and support to the more than 65 million Americans who care for a loved one with a chronic illness, disability, or the frailties of old age.
Silverstone Bed & Breakfast in Chestnut Hill (www.silverstonestay.com) hosted the video session and everyone involved had a great time. We also met two other caregivers, the Haggertys, who participated with their experiences and lessons learned.
As a group leader, I am very pleased that we were contacted and invited to participate in this program. As a group, we had a great showing of 2 members , 50% of the group, and this says a lot for how we're doing in Philadelphia....yay us!!!
Both Alice and Rudy had some great information to share and in an exchange with the Haggertys were very animated and emotionally charged.
I'm so proud of your guys.....Thank you!!
