Join me in this captivating discussion with Carolyn Birrell as she talks about her journey "Walking with Fay" in the midst of her mother's Dementia. In this episode we will touch on:
Carolyn was a young retiree who had relocated after a successful career working for the American Cancer Society and then later, as a real estate agent. Soon after her move, she was faced with the realization that her mother had dementia and could no longer live by herself. As a result, Carolyn and her sister relocated their mother, and Carolyn spent the next eight years caring for her aging mom while learning all things dementia.
As Carolyn was going through this journey, she journaled about her feelings and the interactions with her mom and eventually she used those journals to write the book, Walking with Fay.
