Be Brave: A Wife’s Journey Through Caregiving invites the reader to walk in the shoes of a caregiver whose spouse suffers from Lewy body dementia. On the day of Chuck’s debilitating stroke—the “day everything changed”—Florrie began chronicling their story with honesty, humor, compassion, and a desire for self-discovery. Six years later when Chuck died of complications from LBD, Florrie sifted through her random notes, journal entries, and written observations, and wove them into this moving memoir: a tribute to a loving marriage tested by unanticipated and transformational challenges.
Florrie spoke at the Third Annual National Caregiving Conference in Chicago, IL on Friday, Nov. 9, 2018. Her presentation was entitled WELCOME TO YOUR NEW LIFE: The Potential for Transformation in Caregiving. Click here to read a summary. You can watch a video of the talk here:
