“Caregivers often say they feel all alone which is why Lori and I teamed up for this special effort on her talk radio program to encourage caregivers, especially the 15 million Americans caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease, to call in and talk to us as well as learn from other experts about resources and services to help them and to know they are not alone,” says Sherri Snelling, founder and CEO of Caregiving Club and author of “A Cast of Caregivers – Celebrities Stories to Help You Prepare to Care.” “Part of our role as ShareCare experts is providing guidance and advice to caregivers who don’t know where to turn. My personal mission is to help caregivers navigate caring for their loved one while also finding time to care for themselves – what I call the Sandwich Generation juggling act.”

“My goal is to shift the dementia care culture worldwide, from crisis to comfort, by giving a voice to all which is why this November we’re going to highlight caregiver challenges and solutions,” says Lori La Bey, founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks. “If we can help even one person with dementia or those caring for others as a result of these radio shows and help change how dementia care is perceived, received and delivered, then we’ll start the spark that will ignite a huge difference caregiver’s lives.”
