Presented by Dr. Allan Vann, Published Author, Blogger, Alzheimer’s Advocate and Caregiver; Recipient of the Outstanding Alzheimer’s/Senior Care Advocate Award at the 2014 LIAF Coping and Caring Conference

Dr. Allan S. Vann retired as an elementary school principal in 2000. Just as he helped other educators through his professional writing as a principal, after his wife, Clare, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Dr. Vann returned to writing. But this time for publication to try and improve procedures used by doctors to diagnose and treat people with AD and assist their caregivers; to increase awareness and funding for AD research; and to help fellow caregivers and advocates.

Dr. Vann will discuss topics from his 35 columns, “Reflections of an Alzheimer’s Spouse,” which were published in the “Healthy Living” section of the HuffPost. He will touch on topics such as acceptance, anxiety and depression, caring costs and tips, choosing a community and much more.

Seating is limited to 25 in-person attendees due to social distancing rules, and masks must be worn. Event will also be offered virtually.

The Best Anniversary

My husband has aphasia and has lost his ability to speak. It’s very frustrating for him, and it’s a sadness for me too. So imagine my surprise when Artis helped him celebrate our wedding anniversary. When I visited him that day, residents and staff were all gathered around the room, carrying a banner the residents had made—with my husband in the center, holding a bouquet of flowers and a card for me! They even helped him sign his name on the card—something he hadn’t been able to do in years! In a way, it was one of our best anniversary celebrations. Thank you Artis, from the bottom of my heart.
