Special Presentation Featuring Former Wisconsin Governor Martin J. Schreiber: My Two Elaines

His raw honesty and practical advice will inspire other caregivers to find patience, courage and love as they climb the Alzheimer's mountain. Schreiber’s book,
My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver, will be available for purchase for $15. Proceeds are used to promote Alzheimer’s caregiver support.
