Our Host, Lori La Bey will be talking with Author Patti Davis about her new book FLOATING IN THE DEEP END How Caregivers Can See Beyond Alzheimer’s.

Most of us understand how difficult dealing with a dementia diagnosis is, but now add to that journey that your father is not only a public figure but is President Ronald Reagan. This is Patti’s story which started in 1994, when her dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. 

For the decade of her father’s illness, Patti felt as if she was floating in the deep end, tossed by waves, carried by currents, yet not drowning. Her lifelines were her faith and a stubborn resolve to look past the cruelty of the disease in order to learn from it.

We are so honored to have Patti with us today.  She has authored many books, including The Long Goodbye. Her support group, Beyond Alzheimer’s, is now licensed at Geisinger Medical Center in Pennsylvania and Cleveland Clinic in Las Vegas.
