Dear Caregivers and Friends,
Happy New Year. I pray that you are all doing well and had an enjoyable holiday season. I am looking forward to another great year of sharing H.O.P.E. for the Alzheimer’s Journey with caregivers. I am also increasing my volunteer roles with the Alzheimer’s Association as a State Champion (advocacy) and Faith Outreach Representative.
My mother Elizabeth would have celebrated her 100th birthday on January 15th. My brothers and I were on her Alzheimer’s journey together for over 11 years. Now, my mother is with me on a different journey as I work to help caregivers have a less stressful, more rewarding experience. Please see the beautiful Greenville & Hockessin LIFE magazine article written by Richard Gaw entitled “Honoring Elizabeth.”
The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America sponsors the Teens for Alzheimer’s Awareness College Scholarship Essay Contest. College-bound high school seniors impacted (family, community, awareness, etc.) by dementia are eligible. The grand prize is $5000. In 2019, almost $35,000 was awarded. The deadline for the 1200 to 1500-word essay is February 28th. For more information visit: https://alzfdn.org/young-leaders-of-afa/scholarship-contest/
Best Book Award
The American Book Fest has named H.O.P.E. for the Alzheimer’s Journey: Help, Organization, Preparation, and Education for the Road Ahead an award-winning finalist. H.O.P.E. was a finalist in both the “Health: General” and Self-Help: General” categories. There were over 2,000 entries in the 2019 Best Book Awards, one of their most competitive years since its inception in 2004. I am so honored to receive this double recognition from The American Book Fest.
I am currently developing my 2020 schedule to share H.O.P.E. with support groups, senior facilities, churches, and workplaces. Please contact me if you would like me to share H.O.P.E. with your group. Visit carolbamos.com for an update of my events.
