Our Experts Actually Have Dementia
Steve Ponath , was diagnosed with EOAD in 2011. He has become an advocate for those who can’t speak out about the disease. It’s time to bring awareness to everyone of what this disease does to not only the patient, but to the caregiver’s and loved ones who are on this journey with us.
Michael Ellenbogen , is 54 years old. His career was in Information Technology, where he was a high level manager. Michael was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease at the age of 49. He is no longer able to work. Michael now spend my time trying to increase awareness of this disease, and work to increase funding for research. He just finished writing his book outlining my experience with Alzheimer’s.
Here is our last session where we discussed the importance of relationships and connecting, How To Tell what someone wants when they don’t speak, How other Peoples moods effect someone with dementia, How, when and why do you get someone to eat and How to re prioritize and balance life with dementia.
