Just so you know…
Every once in a while, caregiver groups ask if I’d make a live presentation to their members about my experiences with dementia and Dead Men Don’t Eat Chicken. The answer is always yes! I love to share a laugh and a cry with people who understand what dementia caregiving is like on a day-in day-out basis.
I call my presentation “Lessons I’ve Learned from my Parents’ Dementia”, and in it I share the key things I’ve learned about dementia and caregiving since launching this site, as well as many of my personal stories and observations. It’s not always easy to talk about a subject matter that touches our hearts so deeply, but it’s very important and deeply gratifying to do so.

Here’s what some of my past attendees have to say about my presentation:
“Diane Rosen recently spoke at our Family Council Meeting at Manor Care in Highland Park. Her impressive presentation inspired our members because of her genuine passion and honesty regarding her experiences with her parents. The feedback was so positive that everyone who attended requested that she return. Diane speaks from her heart with a truth that touches all who work or care for the elderly.”
G, Thomas, Former President of the Family Council of Manor Care, Highland Park
“Diane’s presentation is filled with warmth, love, and an invaluable real-life perspective on a topic that has or will affect ALL of us in the course of our lifetimes. Her personal experience has yielded a keen sense of understanding that she has generously opted to share … so that others may meet similar challenges with grace, dignity, and a far better sense of awareness.”
J. Siegel, Family Caregiver
“Thanks again so much for coming and speaking at Arden Courts. Your presentation was wonderful. It is always great to hear that information from someone who lived it. “
A. Barnicle, Marketing Director, Arden Courts of Elk Grove Village
“Diane is an articulate public speaker who mixes real-life stories with lessons learned and feelings felt that she shares with her listening audience. Diane manages even to find humor in her subject matter, and that humor, tastefully woven into her spoken words, provides the perfect touch to a memorable program.”
J. Holstein, Adult Day Services Director, CJE SeniorLife
