Welcome! Welcome to the messy, confusing, overwhelming, and challenging world of being a caregiver for someone with memory loss/dementia. My name is Dr. Becky Wellman. I have been working with older adults with memory loss for almost 30 years and have a special passion for helping them and YOU live your best life despite all of the challenges that come with this journey.
These “newsletters” will be short and sweet. I know you don’t have time to sit and read dissertation-length “how-tos”. I know you are feeling overwhelmed and like life is spinning out of control. I’m here to help. That said, this is not a sunshine, rainbows, Skittles, and unicorns approach. Living with someone with dementia is none of that. It’s difficult. It’s frustrating. It’s ugly. Let’s face it, it sucks. I embrace the suckiness and help find ways to help you navigate through it. If you’re looking for the straight and honest truth, you’ve come to the right place!
Dementia sucks. Caregiving sucks. Welcome!
