In This Episode
We’re fast-forwarding through the editing queue to bring you this episode recorded June 23, 2020. We wanted to make this episode as timely as possible for a few reasons:
- Phil Gutis (our Assistant Sherpa on The Alzheimer’s Podcast) and his husband Tim Weaver once again did a Longest Day event on behalf of The Alzheimer’s Association. The Longest Day was last weekend, but the fundraising doesn’t close out until August 31, 2020, so there’s still time to donate here.
- Phil describes their Longest Day experience as Laurel & Hardy Throw a Party, and gives up the details. There’s a lot of laughing in this episode, and sometimes–like if we’ve been lucky enough to survive 2020 so far–we just need to laugh.
- We finally got Tim on the show!! He provides some great insight and what I believe are three of the most valuable pieces of advice a dementia care partner will ever get.
