Why take an Alzheimer’s cruise? First of all, you learn to make positive shifts in your life while creating beautiful memories with your family. Taking the “Connecting Circles of Care & Building Bridges of Hope” cruise that’s what you’ll get. Sharing their stories with the cruisers is a huge line up of speakers speaking from all aspects of living with dementia.
Joining the inaugural sailing was past guest, Marianne Sciucco author of Blue Hydrangeas. (You can check out her episode here). She jumped online to fill in all of us on everything we can expect for next year’s cruise!
The cruise keynote speaker was Jeff Boroghoff. Jeff is living with and fighting the war on Alzheimer’s. Putting together the cruise was Lisa Marie Chirico, also a nursing home navigator coach. Speaking on “Resilience strategies & what she wish she’d know when she was a caregiver was her other contribution.
Additionally, there was Daniel J. Hutcherson, a financial gerontologist & 20 year Wall Street veteran. He spoke on “The Six Domains of Financial Exploitation: Protecting Your Money and Your Independence.” Certainly, a class everyone should take.
Holding down the job I’d like was Peter Maeck, a writer, photographer, speaker, and teacher. Peter taught a class on “Remembrance of Things Present: Making Peace with Dementia”.
Providing a class we all need was Christy Turner, Founder of Dementia Sherpa. Teaching everyone how to be the “Best Darn Dementia Care Partner You Can Be”. Even when you’re feeling worn out. For that reason, I’m going to see if I can get her as a guest for the show.
Continuing on was Gene Saunders, the founder & CEO of Project Lifesaver International. Informing the attendees on how to “Protect Your Loved One and Provide the Family with Peace of Mind.”
Additionally, There Were Three More Speakers
Explaining how three daughters of dementia started AlzAuthors was co-founder Marianne Sciucco. AlzAuthors is a global community of writers sharing their dementia stories. Notably, they now have over 200 member authors.
Award-winning film producer & co-owner of Backfin Media Daphne Glover-Ferrier. She screened their film; “Spent – The Hidden Cost of Dementia.” Finally, Loretta Anderson, an independent healthcare researcher, speaking on lifestyle interventions in Alzheimer’s disease and healthy brain aging.
Above all, cruising with AlzTropics will make your journey with dementia just a little bit easier. Certainly, you’ll want to add this to your bucket list.
