To develop this course, I drew on my education, my professional research background, and my 15-years of life experience as the daughter of a Mom who lived with Alzheimer's. I hold a BA in English and a Master's in Library and Information Science and am a former researcher at Microsoft.
Even with my background as a professional researcher, I had little success finding answers to my questions during Mom's Alzheimer's. There were (and still are) very few resources on Alzheimer's dementia written for adult children. This course is created to fill this gap. It is rooted in the research I've done, the training I've received, the people I've met, and my person family experience.
Before developing this course, I researched and documented my Mom's Alzheimer's journey, and published it as a timeline for other families to use. It's called Patterns in Time: One Family's Journey. I'm very proud that it won a design award, as my illustrator and I put a lot of effort into making it visually beautiful as well as jam-packed with rarely found information.
I wish you peace, strength and acceptance as you and your family travel the Alzheimer's journey together.
