Hello, caregivers! My name is Carrie Aalberts and I am so excited that you are here! Dementia Darling's Mission is to make sure NO caregiver feels alone in their journey! I hope to reach as many people as possible to reduce the stigma about dementia and caregiving through sharing information and experiences. I have incredible respect for caregivers across the entire lifespan. However, in my professional life I have worked mainly with dementia family and professional caregivers. I have my Master of Science focused in Gerontology (study of aging) and I am a Certified Dementia Practitioner. I have been a professional caregiver on and off for the last ten years. I now work for an incredible company, Eugeria (www.eugeria.care) as a Care Advisor. I am honored to work for a company that is on the forefront of dignified dementia products and supports.
I started Dementia Darling in 2019 to share my passion of supporting the dementia community! I want to be a listening ear, shoulder to cry on, and your biggest cheerleader! If you meet another caregiver or someone facing dementia please reach out to them and be a source of love and comfort for them. We need to work together to help those on this journey and bring caregivers into the light. Thank you for following and thank you for all you do for your loved ones!
