Untangling Motherhood and Dementia with Ann Campanella
Ann Campanella is a former magazine and newspaper journalist, the author of two memoirs and four collections of poetry, and an AlzAuthors manager and director. Her award-winning writing has appeared in literary journals, newspapers and magazines across the country and around the world, and she has discussed her work on numerous podcasts.
Ann’s first memoir, Motherhood: Lost and Found, was twice named “One of the best Alzheimer’s books of all time” by Book Authority. In 2018, she was recognized by her hometown newspaper as one of the Most Influential Women in her community. She has a degree in English Literature from Davidson College and lives with her family and animals in North Carolina.
In this episode, we discuss her heartbreaking journey to become a mother while losing her own mother to dementia at the same time, the healing power of horses, and the “season” of caregiving.
