Hi there,

A dementia diagnosis and care plan is highly individualized. Everyone impacted by the disease responds differently and processes emotions and challenges in unique ways. After a diagnosis, it can be challenging for some to move away from denial to living a life filled with hope.

Learning how to move from ‘Why me?’ to “What’s next?’ can truly be life-changing for someone living with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. Next Thursday, 2/20 I have the pleasure of chatting with Rev. Dr. Cynthia Huling Hummel about her personal Alzheimer’s journey and how she’s turned her diagnosis into advocacy and art.

Cynthia will share how she positively expresses her emotions through art by creating beautiful masks that portray her passion, struggles, and truths about living with Alzheimer’s. I encourage you to look up Cynthia’s book: Unmasking Alzheimer’s: The Memories Behind the Masks for inspiration and insight into how and what you or your loved one might be feeling throughout the various stages of dementia.
