Pittsburgh native Carole Brecht comes from a talkative family, but when her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease no one discussed her illness. In today’s show, Carole shares what she learned about the importance of having frank conversations about Alzheimer’s, and she talks about the silence and isolation that accompanied her own caregiving experience. She also talks about her father’s unwavering devotion to her mother and how, during her saddest and darkest days, Carole found her way back to her roots as an artist, creating a book that combines Zentangle-inspired artwork with supportive letters written to caregivers.
