McGill Cares: A Wife’s Journey of Love, Devotion and Caregiving Challenges
Join us on June 1, 2022, 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.
A Wife’s Journey of Love, Devotion and Caregiving Challenges
Linda Grossman graduated from the University of Toronto in 1961 as a registered dental hygienist. She is the author of six children’s books that she wrote for the Toronto Child Abuse Centre. She became a passionate advocate for people living with dementia while caring for her husband, Dr. S. William "Mickey" Grossman. She serves on several boards and councils related to aging, including the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging’s (CCNA) Engagement of People with Lived Experience of Dementia.
Mrs. Grossman will speak about her journey as a caregiver to her husband and the ripple effect it had on her own mental health. She will share what she has learned about the plight of seniors in hospitals and long-term care facilities, and other important lessons from her hands-on experience with dementia care.
