Dignity and Dementia: Carpe Diem
“Dignity & Dementia: Carpe Diem invites you to experience life with dementia through the lens of the author. This easy-to-read book pulls you into the writer’s world with short journal entries, published as written, from the time of her diagnosis through the first six years of her journey with a cognitive impairment. Written with optimism and humour, this book offers a first-hand perspective on the joys and challenges of life and love while living with dementia.”

A Rose for Grandma
“Annie loves spending time with her grandparents; they’re some of her favorite people. One day she notices Grandma acting a bit strangely, and Annie learns that her warm, creative, loving grandma has Alzheimer’s Disease. Although at first Annie is worried, as she learns more about dementia, she makes up her mind to help Grandma in any way she can.”
“Inspired by insights from older adults, personal support workers, nurses, and experts in long-term care, I have designed a garment that optimizes continence care for both carers and wearers. ZipperOn is a one-piece cozy fabric garment with 4 zippers oriented downwards between the legs for quick and easy access to care. This is an ideal product for those: wearing incontinence products, receiving wound care, experiencing pain, or displaying responsive behaviours.”
