Author of “Walking Him Home: Helping My Husband Die with Dignity”Joanne Kelley
Joanne has been a caregiver for decades. First, for her son who had schizophrenia, then for her mom, who had Alzheimer’s disease. After her mom’s death, she provided care for her dad, who also suffered from dementia. When Joanne’s husband, Alan, found out he had MSA, a fatal neurodegenerative illness, she moved her dad to a memory care facility so she could devote her energy to taking care of her husband.
