Alzheimer’s sucks, but our family rocks! On this page we are caregivers, children, and siblings here to discuss Alzheimer’s in our family, both through our mom’s journey and our own mental health journeys as we navigate this terrible disease.
Welcome! We are the hosts of Alz In The Fam, Allan Fair and Poli Fair Noyes. Our mom has been suffering from Alzheimer’s for over 10 years now. When we realized that our mom was battling Alzheimer’s, we, her children, quickly became her caregivers. It’s a difficult transition, from kid to caregiver, but together with our other two sisters and the rest of our family, we continue to fight.
We will be releasing new podcast episodes every other Wednesday. We hope that this podcast can become a community and platform for caregivers, children, and loved ones to commiserate, share, and connect with one another.
We have two episodes live now that really cover the beginning of our journey with Alzheimer’s. Slowly, we noticed signs in our mom that are mentioned in the Alzheimer’s Association’s article “10 Early Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia", which ultimately led to us getting our mom the help she needed.
We hope that this podcast can serve as a resource for anyone going through a similar experience. If you’d like, reach out to us on our social channels and let us know about Alzheimer’s in your families! How has Alzheimer’s affected you?
Thanks for reading!
