Below are children whose parent or loved one suffered from a dementia that was caused by something other than Alzheimer's Disease.
This angel grew up with a grandfather who had AD and Korsakoff's (formally known as hardening of the arteries) and she now works in a nursing home with lots of individuals who suffer from some form of dementia. Not only that, but Jonda also holds a Masters in Counseling but she's a licensed social worker too. As you can see, this is one diversified angel who can help with many different problems!
Eileen is the angel to talk to if you're in need of an ear about Alcohol Dementia, long distance caregiving of a parent....or both! Her parent is suspected of having a dementia related to alcohol abuse, so she's been learning a lot about it ever since.
Laura is another daughter with a lot of background in dealing with dementia as well as Down Syndrome. Her brother Chuck was born with DS and although he isn't symptomatic yet, she is well informed about Downs and Dementia.
Megans father Dave, recently passed away from complications brought on from being a longtime sufferer of MS. Many of these years were spent with Megan and her mother Pat, being the primary caregiver. Megan is a wonderful person to talk to about home caregiving, Hospice, and the challenges of loving someone with MS.
