In the post below about the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America ("AFA") Conference held on May 5th in Nashville, one of the photos taken onstage shows a projected image on screen of "Ashley Campbell's Interview AFA Care Quarterly Magazine". This interview was actually a published column titled "'Gentle On My Mind' Lessons in Caregiving" written by Ashley for AFA's Fall 2013 magazine (published at that time under the name of "care ADvantage").
The AFA Care Quarterly provides information for caregivers of people with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses. I have personally found the quarterlies to be outstanding resources, and Ashley's advice in her column really hits home for me, particularly: "Live your life with love and cherish each precious moment you have with your loved one. That is all we can do. Time is fleeting. We can never make more time, but we can make more memories to hold onto."
If you would like to read the AFA Care Quarterly online, you can find the current issue as well as archived issues saved as PDFs here: http://www.alzfdn.org/Publications/afa- ... chive.html

Following is Ashley's column from 2013 (which is unfortunately not available online). [Click on each image to enlarge the viewing window.]
Shared here with gratitude to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America for reissuing Ashley's column.
