Afternoon with the Author: Cynthia Fantasia presents In the Lingering Light: Courage and Hope for the Alzheimer's Caregiver

Wednesday, February 12, 2020

Alzheimer’s is a particularly cruel disease. It robs us of the people we love-- slowly, subtly, but unrelentingly. Our love for them is tested as their needs increase and our own needs are neglected Educator and pastor, Cynthia Fantasia, traveled this road with her husband of forty-eight years and has written a field guide for Alzheimer's caregivers. In this deeply understanding and empowering work, she walks us through the landscape of caregiving for our loved ones and for ourselves. She'll introduce us to friends and fellow travelers who offer their own words of empathy and insight and empower us to live well as we care for our loved ones in the lingering light. Books will be available for sale and signing.
