From The Editor

Gary Barg - Editor-in-chief 

Message From the CEO

Last week, I was in Arkansas for the first annual Fort Smith Fearless Caregiver Conference and in Tulsa for the Alzheimer’s Association’s regional conference. The topics discussed at both events were wide-reaching and powerful. As usual, I learned much from listening to family caregivers. One topic that we spent a good deal of time on at both events was what I like to call the art of becoming the “CEO of Caring for Momma, Inc.” And, as any good CEO would do, the caregiver analyzes what support is needed, from whom and asks for it.  Coincidently, I received a note last week from a reader that says it as well as it can be said.  Hmmm, maybe there are no coincidences

Hi Gary,
I want to say thank you for all that you do for the caregiver.  Being able just to read the newsletters and attend the conferences gives very helpful tips and encouragement to us all. 

Take care

Gary Barg

Ten Tips to Protect a Wandering Loved One
By John Paul Marosy


Advise Local Responders First – Fill out a 911 disability indicator form and submit it to your local law enforcement agency.  The information on the form alerts law enforcement that a person residing at that address may require special assistance during an emergency.  ...continued



I am trying to find a suitable assisted living facility in Southern California for my wife who is 41 years old and has cognitive impairment due to multiple strokes.  I've checked my local caregiver resource center, my state's community care licensing facility (for ARFs), and called placement referral services but to no avail.  The places I've contacted are biased toward seniors, boarding homes that allow for at most 1 person under 60, or for mentally unstable (bi-polar, psychotic, etc.) people.  Right now the closest option are the boarding homes, which settings and activities are geared toward seniors.  My wife needs supervision and some assistant with her ADLs but she still enjoys going out (malls, movies, beaches, parks, etc.) which isn't conducive to a boarding home environment (i.e. she will be living with only seniors).  There must be facilities that are geared to a younger crowd.  Please help.
