How Is The Corona Virus Affecting You And Those You Care For With Dementia? Let’s talk about your feelings, fears, plans and ideas!

We understand this is a very scary time for most everyone around the world and we want to have an honest conversation without judgement and let people share their thoughts, their feelings, their fears, their plans, their ideas. 

We want to know how you are adjusting to the changes occurring daily from interactions with family, friends, social circles as well as medical appointments, adult day care. To community care for a loved one; to jobs, schools and churches closings; to transportation, shopping, travel, fitness centers and grocery stores… We want to hear from you and how the corona virus is affecting you. 

Our host, Lori La Bey is excited to facilitate this important conversation and as usual wants to hear the voices of those living with dementia, families caring for them as well as professionals and businesses supporting dementia care.
