Bobbi Carducci Untangles The Inadequate vs. The Imperfect Caregiver

Bobbi Carducci is a national speaker on Alzheimer’s and dementia, how it affects entire families, and how to prepare to care – what adults need to know about these diagnoses before and after they strike home. Taking on the role of caregiver for her father-in-law, Rodger, for seven years ultimately inspired her to embark on a new path in life, where she is a caregiver advocate, support group leader, Certified Caregiving Consultant (CCC), Certified Caregiving Educator (CCE), author, blogger, and podcaster. Her personal experience on the dementia journey allows her to connect with and educate caregivers as she speaks with honesty, compassion, and humor about caring for an aging family member.

She is the author of Confessions of an Imperfect Caregiver and Caregiver – You Are Not Alone.

In this episode, we discuss the challenges that a history of mental illness brings to a dementia diagnosis, the differences between being an inadequate caregiver vs. an imperfect caregiver, and the many ways dementia is a “family disease.”
