About Susan Landeis
Susan Landeis and her mother shared a difficult childhood, leading to abandonment issues, estrangement, and then a need for care on a dementia journey. Despite decades of abuse, Susan put aside her feelings and came to her mother’s aid, taking on not only the role of mom’s caregiver, but eventually the role of caring for her father.
This experience inspired her first book, Optimal Caregiving: A guide for managing senior health and well-being. And then a second, more personal memoir, called In Search of Rainbows: A daughter’s story of loss, hope, and redemption.
Susan is a certified nutritionist and certified senior advocate. Prior to this, she spent over twenty years working in the field of Health Information Management. She is also a member of the AlzAuthors management team, and is responsible for creating the beautiful graphics on our social media platforms.
In this episode, we discuss how she overcame her difficult childhood and rebuilt her relationship with her mother, her search for the rainbows in dementia care, and the unexpected gift she received from her mother’s Lewy Body disease.
