Roundtable on Learning, Coping, & Surviving As An Alzheimer’s Caregiver, with Former Governor Martin Schreiber

Join former Wisconsin Gov. Martin J. Schreiber as he shares lessons from his decade-plus journey as a caregiver for his wife, Elaine, who lives with Alzheimer’s disease.

Gov. Schreiber will candidly describe his challenges and missteps, and highlight how compassion and humor provide comfort to both caregiver and the person with dementia. His raw honesty and practical advice will inspire other caregivers to find patience, courage, and love as they climb the Alzheimer’s mountain.

Schreiber’s award-winning book, My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver, will be available for purchase for $15. (Cash or checks preferred.) Net proceeds are used to promote Alzheimer’s caregiver support.
