Living With Alzheimer’s – Thursday, May 10, 6:00-8:00 p.m. The Senior Ministry Committee invites you to join former Wisconsin Governor Martin J. Schreiber at St. Sebs as he shares lessons from his decade-plus journey as a caregiver for his wife, Elaine, who lives with Alzheimer’s disease.
Gov. Schreiber will candidly describe his challenges and missteps, and highlight how compassion and humor provide comfort to both caregiver and the person with dementia. His raw honesty and practical advice will inspire other caregivers to find patience, courage and love as they climb the Alzheimer’s mountain.
Schreiber’s award-winning book, My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver, will be available for purchase. Net proceeds are used to promote Alzheimer’s caregiver support.
