Former Wisconsin Governor Martin J. Schreiber


Join former Wisconsin Gov. Martin J. Schreiber as he shares lessons from his more- than 10-year journey as a caregiver for his wife, Elaine, who lives with Alzheimer's disease. Governor Schreiber will candidly describe his challenges and missteps, and highlight how compassion and humor provide comfort to both caregiver and the person with dementia. His raw honesty and practical advice will inspire other caregivers to find patience, courage and love as they climb the Alzheimer's mountain.
