My name is Sarah. I recently graduated from CSU Fullerton with my master's degree in gerontology. Through my studies I was very interested in dementia among older adults and how family members, including adolescent children, are affected by the disease. Alzheimer's disease can be very devestating, due to the various declines from stages.
As a result from my project, I published a schoolage children's book through kindle called **********. The purpose of my story is to educate children on how they can notice certain behaviors of their loved ones in their own home and out in the community. With the help of parents and communication, children will be able to
openly express their feelings and emotions. Children will also be aware of family support and connection they need, and ways to contibute as a family team.
Creative thinking through young children enhances older adults to reminisce about
past memories. Through intergenerational activities, older adults can better enhance their quality of life.
Thank you for your time in reading my story to share and I would love to hear from you soon!
When you get a chance I would love to share with you on the creation of my book and your feedback!
