Filling The Gap For Children Who Have Parents With Young Onset Dementia.

Our host, Lori La Bey will be talking with Diana Shulla Cose the Founding Executive Director, of Lorenzo’s House, and Bree Ruge the Lead of Programs & Development at Lorenzo’s House. Also joining us are three young adults who are involved with Lorenzo’s House – William Dean, Shylah Thiara, and Jessica.

Diana Shulla Cose is the Founding Executive Director, of Lorenzo’s House. Diana has been the primary care partner to her husband and mother. She is a true visionary, entrepreneur, strategist, innovator, and proven fundraiser. After her husband was diagnosed with Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s she recognized a massive care and connection gap for younger families and in 2021 founded Lorenzo’s House, a non-profit social impact startup designed to empower families everywhere living with Younger-Onset dementia.

Diana leveraged her past career of over 25 years as Co-Founder & President of a network of public schools in Chicago, scaling from 40 students and 2 teachers to 2,300 students and over 250 staff across 5 schools – Diana brings deep experience and insight to her new venture in this new space. 

Bree Ruge, Certified Dementia Practitioner, is a certified Dementia Friend by Dementia Friendly America, and the Lead of Programs & Development at Lorenzo’s House. She has the privilege of building programs and relationships with youth and care partners daily. Bree has been personally touched by Alzheimer’s in her family which gave her knowledge and insights to walk alongside families living with Younger-Onset dementia. Bree was a co-creator, developing the Dementia Friendly Initiative in 4 neighborhoods in the Northside of Chicago.

William Dean, who goes by Will, is 23 years old and is from Wales in the United Kingdom. Will’s mother lives with young onset dementia, and this challenge has inspired him to become an advocate for change through fundraising and raising awareness.

Shylah Thiara’s father was diagnosed with Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s in his mid-50s, and since then she became an advocate and blogger. Shylah spreads awareness and tackles the misconceptions associated with Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s disease by sharing her journey of navigating her father’s diagnosis.  

Jessica Christensen is a 13-year-old from Utah.  Diana described Jessica as a bright ray of light for this world who has thoughtful perspectives and inspires many, wise beyond her years, and is a youth leader at Lorenzo’s House. Jessica’s father was diagnosed with young-onset Alzheimer’s disease and she has been with Lorenzo’s House for about a year and a half and is a youth leader at Lorenzo’s House.

Watch the Video Interview Below

Today on Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio, Lori La Bey is joined by Dr Laird, and Deanna Vigliotta with Seni as we wrap up this four-part series on what “quality of life and good care” actually looks like in Memory Care.

Dr. Laird is a Geriatrician and has 25 years of experience as Medical Director for two Memory Disorder Clinics in Florida. Dr. Laird is a passionate advocate for the support of family caregivers and co-authored the book Take Your Oxygen First: Preserving Your Health and Happiness While Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Deanna Vigliotta has an extensive 30-year healthcare sales and sales management background.  She is a master collaborator who focuses on building relationships with healthcare professionals. Deanna joined the Seni sales team to better educate consumers, geriatricians, neurologists, Skilled Nursing Facilities – SNF, Assisted Living Facilities – ALF, Home Health Care, and Memory Care communities about the importance of choosing high-performing adult incontinence products to improve the quality of life for incontinent people as well as those that care for them.   In doing so she moved quickly into the role of National Sales Manager with Seni, supporting her teammates and Seni’s clients, to shift the mindset in the USA from adult incontinence products being viewed as a disposable commodity to high-performing incontinence products being viewed as a critical component to the continuum of care

Bella Groves and Seni

Our Host, Lori La Bey is joined by James Lee with Bella Groves, and Deanna Vigliotta with Seni as we discuss what “quality of life and good care” actually looks like in Memory Care.

James Lee is the CEO and co-founder of Bella Groves, a company in San Antonio, Texas helping families in the journey of supporting a loved one living with dementia.  James has 15 years of experience in the senior living industry and is focused today on helping his local community in central Texas.

Deanna Vigliottahas an extensive 30-year healthcare sales and sales management background.  She spent many years of her career working in the Radiology Imaging space, where she built relationships with healthcare professionals, and provided related healthcare products & ancillary services.

Deanna joined the Seni sales team to better educate consumers, geriatricians, neurologists, Skilled Nursing Facilities – SNF, Assisted Living Facilities – ALF, Home Health Care, and Memory Care communities about the importance of choosing high-performing adult incontinence products to improve the quality of life for incontinent people as well as those that care for them.   In doing so she moved quickly into the role of National Sales Manager with Seni, supporting her teammates and Seni’s clients, to shift the mindset in the USA from adult incontinence products being viewed as a disposable commodity to high-performing incontinence products being viewed as a critical component to the continuum of care
