Let me start by first introducing myself. My name is Nicole Parrish and I am a 17 year old high school student. I first became interested in learning about dementia after watching this devastating disease affect my two grandparents - Granny and Poppy, my Dad's sister - Aunt Wendy and my great Aunt Ardeth. I witness everyday how emotionally challenging and painful this disease is on family members and caregivers.

I invite you to read my bi-weekly blog. I pray it is helpful to others in similar situations. Perhaps we can share our experiences and learn from each other.
