Two Boomer Women & The Fine Art of Conversation

TBW Guest: Family Dementia Caregiver Nancy Poland

November 3, 2021

A reality for many Boomer women is the role of care-giver… it could be one or both of your parents… at our age, it could be a spouse or for some, it might be a close friend.  If your loved one has dementia, the path ahead of you is a windy one, with its highs and lows, the rewards are both great and sometimes seemingly non-existent.

Nancy Poland walked that path with her father, and is now a volunteer Community Educator for the Alzheimer’s Association.

In this episode, Nancy talks about her dad, the man he was and the person he became because of Lewy-body dementia. Her story will reassure you the trials, the emotions you're experiencing are not unusual.

Nancy wrote a book "Dancing With Lewy" and you might be able to receive a free copy if you email her at and, of course, mention this podcast.
