Just hearing the words Alzheimer’s Disease can cause grown men and women to shake. Yes, it’s heart-breaking, but there may be another way to understand it and learn from it. My guest, Cathie Borrie, took care of her mother for seven years. She discovered the side of Alzheimer’s that became an unexpectedly fascinating journey. From her experiences she wrote the book The Long Hello-The Other Side of Alzheimer’s, which was a finalist for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Literary Awards. Join me as we talk to Cathie about her experiences and how ballroom dancing played a role in her relating to her mom. Learn more about Cathie Borrie at her website
