Life Lessons: "I'm Still Me" - Chuck Jackson's Story

Some of you know Chuck Jackson who I wrote about on my blog awhile back. Yesterday morning on NPR I heard his voice on their StoryCorps segment, telling his story about Alzheimer's in his family and his own experience with the disease.

Here's a link to read and listen to his story: Living With Alzheimers: "I'm Still Me".

I applaud the work Chuck is doing to raise awareness about Alzheimer's and admire him for his courage to speak about his own memory loss experiences.

My name is Kathy, and I am the primary caregiver for my 79 year old Dad who has Alzheimer's disease and lives with me in North Carolina.

I am writing a daily blog on my Alzheimer's caregiver website that shows the lighter side of caring for someone with dementia.

We have also added over 100 pages of resources for caregivers that we have gathered over the three years Dad has lived here.

Please pass this link along to anyone you feel would enjoy it.
