Ep. 49 Alzheimer’s Caregivers: The Unsung Heroes with Dr. Judith London

 

Today Dr. Wyatt is inspired to share an interview with Dr. Judith London, a psychologist who cares for Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers. If you listened to last week’s podcast you heard a mention of “Memory Cafes” that are being held in Minnesota. Dr. London share her own stories and experiences with creating support groups for Alzheimer’s patients.

This interview will cover:

  • why Dr. London was inspired to work with and write about Alzheimer’s patients
  • what are the major challenges faced by caregivers for Alzheimer’s patients
  • tips for caregivers in relating to their loved ones with Alzheimer’s
  • how hospice and palliative care workers can be more supportive of family caregivers

You can learn more about Dr. London’s work at her website: www.drjudithlondon.com.
