Ellen Marie Edmonds, Dr. Delisa West, Dr. Jacqueline DeMarco
As we discovered in part one of this Women of Grace series, perhaps no diagnosis is more feared than that of dementia. What can the patient and his loved one expect as the disease progresses? Are there ways to mitigate its advance? What adjustments to life are most beneficial?
Our guests give us their insights. Ellen Marie Edmonds lost her husband, Frank, to Vascular Dementia. Since his death, she has founded an outreach to help others overcome the challenges of this journey. Dr. Delisa West is a neuropsychologist in private practice and Dr. Jacqueline DeMarco is a clinical psychologist whose specialty is trauma and stress.
