Join us on June 28 at noon for the next McGill Cares webcast to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster explores topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia. 

Divine Dementia – Diaries of an Accidental Caregiver 

Marie Moliner is a full-time caregiver for Kevin Whitaker, her true love who has Parkinson’s disease and dementia. She participated in the making of Still Headroom: Parkinson’s and the Power of Care, a short documentary about her life with Kevin.  She is writing a book about her experience and volunteers as Assistant Editor for the Townships Sun.  Before she retired at 55 to look after Kevin, she was a lawyer and public servant who volunteered extensively.  

In this special edition of McGill Cares, we will present Still Headroom: Parkinson’s and the Power of Care and Ms. Moliner will speak about the importance of documenting the journey she is on with her husband. 

The McGill Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences has launched a special crowdfunding initiative in collaboration with Marie Moliner and Kevin Whitaker to raise funds towards the Dementia Education Program.  We hope that you will consider making a gift to help us reach our goal of raising $50,000.  If you are interested in donating, please visit crowdfunding.mcgill.ca/ui/main/p/mariemolinerkevinwhitaker

McGill Cares is supported by the Amelia Saputo Community Outreach for Dementia Care.
