COVID-19, Alzheimer’s and Dementia

 I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy as the surges in COVID-19 on Hawai‘i Island continue–especially those of us who are caregivers for loved ones with Alzheimer’s or other dementia. I wanted to remind everyone about the Alzheimer’s Association’s COVID-19, Alzheimer’s and Dementia resource websiteClick here to learn more.
Also, a big mahalo to our partners at Community First Hawai‘i for letting me share a little of my family’s personal caregiving experiences in this pandemic with my 96-year-old Nana who is living with dementia. You can check it out in last Sunday’s Hawaii Tribune Herald.
