(Creating Dementia Solutions 31) Moving from Pain to Hope: Share Your Story in a Support Group

You’re not alone.  That is often a message heard when we go through life’s challenges.

As we learn in this episode of Creating Dementia Solutions, there is truth to that statement.

Miles for Memories volunteer Linda Frost, a registered nurse and a dementia and caregiver coodinator with Carewell Services Southwest, joins us to talk about the power of a professionally-led support group.

Miles For Memories is a Calhoun County, Michigan organization created in 2013 to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s Disease. Later in 2014, the vision was expanded to include all types of dementia. MFM raises money each year through sponsorships, community events, and grants to gather funds to create local programming for both the person living with dementia and the caregiver. Along with local efforts, 20% of the funds to prevention-related dementia research. Miles for Memories is a committee of 70-plus volunteers and are always looking for more to get involved.
