Untangling Raising Young Children While Caring for Mom with Kathryn Harrison

Today’s guest is Kathryn Harrison, who is not only an AlzAuthor but our Creative Director and a member of our management team.

Kathryn was compelled to create her award-winning children’s book “Weeds in Nana’s Garden” following her mother’s passing from frontotemporal dementia in 2010.

During her family’s journey with the disease, Kathryn noticed how much involving her two young children in caregiving added value to the experience, so she decided to create an engaging picture book that could reach many children, enhance their understanding of dementia, and perhaps encourage them to connect more with those on this journey. The enchanting illustrations in Kathryn’s beautiful book enhance the poignancy of the loving story.

What’s more, Kathryn has collaborated with Dementia Care Expert, Jaclyn Guenette, to launch another book for children about dementia, “I Smile For Grandpa.”
