Based on her decades of personal and professional experience, Karen Stobbe breaks down situations you might find yourself in, approaches to try, ways to talk about and methods of self care amongst caregiving. Following her father and then her mother's diagnosis with Alzheimer's disease, Karen Stobbe made the career switch from theater and improv to dementia care.
