‘My Two Elaines’ discussion with former Wisconsin Governor Martin Schreiber

April 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

UW Oshkosh’s Learning in Retirement program (LIR), in conjunction with Winnebago County, UW Oshkosh Alumni Relations and the Alzheimer’s Association, is pleased to invite you to join former Wisconsin Gov. Martin J. Schreiber as he shares lessons from his decade-plus journey as a caregiver for his wife, Elaine, who lives with Alzheimer’s disease. Gov. Schreiber will candidly describe his challenges and missteps, and highlight how compassion and humor provide comfort to both caregiver and the person with dementia. His raw honesty and practical advice will inspire other caregivers to find patience, courage and love as they climb the Alzheimer’s mountain.

Signed copies of Schreiber’s award-winning books, My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver, will be available for purchase for $15. (Cash or checks preferred.) Net proceeds are used to promote Alzheimer’s caregiver support.

This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.
