Jennifer Fink Untangles Podcasts, an Essential Tool for Dementia Caregivers
Jennifer Fink is the daughter, granddaughter, and great granddaughter of three women who have succumbed to Alzheimer’s or other cognitive impairments. Her quest to discover how not to become the fourth generation in her family with this condition, while also seeking ways to better connect with her mother, led her to her new passion, podcasting. She is the producer and host of Fading Memories, a podcast that listens, hears, and offers wisdom and hope from caregivers who have lived the experience.
Jennifer discovered long ago that podcasts are an easily accessible way to learn new things. She could walk the dog or do housework while learning about a variety of topics. But when she searched for shows that might help her find answers to her many questions about Alzheimer’s, she did not find what she was looking for, so she decided to create one herself.
In its fourth season, Fading Memories focuses on conversations with people who offer resources and ideas for whatever stage of dementia your loved one is in. It’s part helpful information and part true stories from caregivers like you and is for anyone caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
In this episode, we discuss the importance of estate planning sooner rather than later, dealing with a difficult sibling in caregiving, and how cycling kept her sane.
You can also “read” the podcast on her blog, which is available on the FadingMemories.com website.
