Such a special memory! Grandma and I were in the September 2018 issue of Woman's Day magazine. I was overjoyed about getting our story published. It could not have happened without my dear friend Lynda Everman's help! I was happy to share with other families that kids who are caregivers are not alone! There are actually 1.8 million young people who are caring for a family member with Alzheimer's disease.
Kid Caregivers is a 501c3 nonprofit organization which supports and empowers children who are acting as caregivers. Our mission is to help young people cope and to enliven the lives of adults living with Alzheimer's disease. We offer intergenerational Puzzle Time programs and training to enhance eldercare globally. We encourage young people to use their skills to benefit the dementia community.

Life of a Kid Caregiver
Here are some pictures of what my life was like while caring for my dear grandma
My dry erase board came in handy. I learned that grandma could not always express what she wanted, so I wrote questions and she was able to either answer me or point or give a thumbs up or down.
Love was ALWAYS behind the caregiving.
Kevin Aldridge our Maryland Ambassador is now our Ambassador to Brazil!
