FINDING JOY IN DEMENTIA
Patti LaFleur is the former care partner for her Mom, Linda, who had mixed dementia. She cared for her Mom for three years. These two were the perfect duo. They shared fun, love and joy together every day. Linda and Patti even made a special trip to Disney before Linda passed in March. Since Linda's passing, Patti has continued to advocate and raise awareness for the dementia and Alzheimer's community. She volunteers for the Alzheimer's Association as a community educator and volunteers in the art class that her Mom attend. She shares her story actively on social media and wants to change the stigma around dementia.
