Taking care of our parents: A discussion with Deborah Shouse, author of Connecting in the Land of Dementia

Todd and Cathy talk with Deborah Shouse and her brother Dan about  what it means to be a “care partner” for parents or loved ones with dementia. They offer how we can bring greater understanding and hope to an undeniably challenging time. They share the power of being present, why appreciation and going with the flow are essential, and how creativity and music can offer a brand new perspective.
