About Our Creators
Kathryn’s commitment to develop dementia resources that support families continues in her work on the team that runs AlzAuthors.com, an online community of authors who are writing about dementia diseases.
Jaclyn says, “for many years I have been working in a hospital Secured Dementia Unit as a Registered Social Worker and Designated Capacity Assessor. Common questions from families, with young children, are often focused around how to explain this very complicated disease to children”. She feels her story writing could help families and children by addressing these common questions in an inviting, loving, and compassionate way.
