Presenter: Linda Sendaula
As primary caregiver for her husband who suffered from Alzheimer's, Linda Sendaula encountered many obstacles in her seven years as a caregiver. From juggling a full time job and her caregiving duties, the stigma associated with Alzheimer's, and even questioning her faith. Through her experience as caregiver, she was able to "find her voice" and she is committed to helping others who are walking this same caregiving path. She has gone from being a reluctant caregiver to being what she calls a "professional" Alzheimer's volunteer.

- What could employers do to more fully understand the needs of caregivers?
- Do you feel there is a stigma with Alzheimer's?
- What part did you faith play in coping with your husband's Alzheimer's disease?
