Alzheimer’s Speaks was sadden with the loss of one of it’s experts living with dementia.  On April 1st, 2015, Dena Dotson planned to leave this world in hopes of a better life.  Although everyone may not agree with her decision, it is important for us to honor her work and advocacy to improve the lives of others living with dementia. We will not judge her decision but accept the fact that none of us can really know what decision we would make if to walk in her shoes.

Today Dena no longer suffers from the symptoms of dementia which made her life unbearable. Today we  celebrate the gifts she gave us while here and grieve her loss together as a community.

Please note this is a replay so you won’t be able to call in today.
