Staying Afloat in a Sea of Forgetfulness –

Common Sense Caregiving with Gary LeBlanc

Author, Gary Joseph LeBlanc. 

Gary writes a weekly column of “Common Sense Caregiving” in the Hernando Today, Tampa Tribune, and many other health publications.

His writings utilize his 3,000 plus days of personal caregiving experience to help other Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers cope with the everyday challenges and emotional struggles of caring for the memory-impaired.

Gary’s book is wonderful!  It is filled with great insights, tips, quotes, and poems.  I can’t believe how much I’ve dog eared and highlighted portions of my book for easy reference to his brilliant yet practical thoughts.

Kudos Gary!  I can’t wait to have you on the show!

Rick Phelps, Founder of Memory People on Facebook will also be making an announce…. so stay posted!
