Meet Alzheimers Advocate Judy Ingalsbe, author of “Stone Benches”
Welcome to Nancy Ferrari Live! As I embody the power of voice and choice, so does my featured guest. She exemplifies her voice and choice to be an Alzheimers advocate. She is also a speaker, blogger and author of the book “Stone Benches: Understanding the Invisible Footprints of Dementia”. My guest, Judith Ingalsbe, wrote her book based on her decades of experiences as a caregiver for her grandmother, mother and father, who were all diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Many factors prompted her to become an advocate. She shares that it was 30 years ago when her grandmother had Alzheimer’s Disease and there is still no cure!
Her passion is to meet a survivor of Alzheimer’s Disease. She invests her efforts to present the needs of all affected by this disease to the lawmakers in Washington, D.C. She was proud to share that Congress approved a $400 million increase for funding for research. These funds are so needed. There are approximately $5.4 million Americans suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, it’s estimated that they need $1 billion dollars to find a cure. Judy shares that we can help the cause by donating to the Alzheimer’s Association at alz.org.
It is Judy’s hope that her readers of “Stone Benches” that care givers will embrace every day with courage, passion and understanding.
Judy also celebrates her collaboration within a newly released book “The Journey to Never Giving Up”. In this book she shares her journey as a caregiver in addition to being an Alzheimer’s advocate. She does this along with 3 other authors, Jody Harris, Doneane Beckcom Reese and Kelly Clanton Cox who share their stories of inspiration. Their book officially releases on May 2, 2017 and is already enjoying best-seller status on the New York Times best seller list!
