Writer, lapsed EMT, current hospice volunteer, ex-marketer, realtor
An undergrad philosophy major whose interest was in morality and ethics, I received my MBA from Cornell in marketing, and spent 15 years in corporate America. A chance event led me to become an EMT, and I then spent 6 years as a medical assistant. My father, a Harvard-educated biochemist, suffered from frontal lobe dementia and died two years ago. My mother suffers from undetermined dementia, likely Lewy Body Dementia. I am a hospice volunteer and witness the ravages of these dignity-robbing diseases in most of my patients.

The number of elderly dementia patients is expected to increase 70% over the next 20More years, and there is no effective medical treatment in sight. How do we care for this vulnerable and precious population?
