On the podcast this week is Valene Campbell. She calls herself a changemaker for her passions, children's literature, and Alzheimer's disease awareness.
After vacationing with her mother in 2016, Valene observed her Mom's increasing forgetfulness, confusion, and irritability. Valene knew immediately upon their return home that her mother required a physical assessment. This life-altering circumstance led her to write her third children's book with a lead Black character to demystify dementia and Alzheimer's within the Black community. The story, The Amazing Zoe and Grandma's Memory Box, also educate children whose families are impacted by dementia and who often participate in the caregiving of a grandparent or loved one. The Amazing Zoe & Grandma's Memory box is a heartfelt and touching story designed to help kids understand Alzheimer's Disease.
Zoe loves to visit her grandma! But this time, she can't help but feel that something is different. Her grandma has forgotten to bake Zoe's favorite cookies, and sometimes she forgets Zoe's name! But luckily, Zoe's Mom is there to help her learn all about Alzheimer's Disease. Zoe even devises a clever and creative way to help her grandma remember all her most treasured memories.
