The 24-Hour Rule: Living with Alzheimer’s

Today, Lori La Bey’s guest on Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio is an amazing woman with not only a wonderful heart but vision to help change the world.

In 2012, at age 56, Cheryl Levin-Folio’s husband, Michael, was diagnosed with Early-Onset Alzheimer’s. Three years later, she retired to become his full-time, primary caregiver. Cheryl is now on a mission to help eradicate dementia, raise awareness, and help others like her negotiate the often treacherous path of care taking. She and her husband Michael face the disease with a positive attitude and proactive strategies for living with the Alzheimer’s.

In the absence of finding a book to inspire Cheryl, she decided to keep a notebook of tips and strategies she picked up along the way. The result is her book The 24-Hour Rule: Living with Alzheimer’s.

We’ve all wrestled with a guilt trip – aging parents or a sick spouse who fear that we will not respect their wishes to stay at home. Statistics reaffirm that seventy-five percent of families try to do just that, despite the physical and emotional challenges of 24/7 dementia care. Often families turn to outside professional home care support.

Please take our A-LIST needs assessment survey and let us know your opinions on paid nursing support.

Decisions about care are deeply personal for those living with dementia and their families. I know from experience that there are no easy answers. Whether you are living with dementia, are a current or past caregiver, or just concerned about your memory, please take this survey and let us know what matters to you when it comes to professional home care.

24/7 care is often central to the Alzheimer’s experience. Every one of us facing this challenge – patients and care partners alike – strives to honor and help our loved ones live well with dementia. Home care providers and policy makers want to know what matters most to the A-LIST.
