Our mission at Marshall Brodien’s Amazing Magic is to support organizations like the Alzheimer’s Association and local Memory Care and Hospice Care facilities like the one that Marshall Brodien resided in. He was battling Alzheimer’s with his family and friends loving support for over 12 years.
Marshall Brodien’s Amazing Magic has supported and participated in the annual Alzheimer’s Association WALK TO END ALZ as TEAM WIZZO raising over $1000.00 last year placing us in the Grand Champions Club, all thanks to generous donations and support. This years WALK will be at Soldier Field in Chicago on Saturday, October 26th. Please join us.
Journalist and author Mary K. Doyle has written a poignant but practical handbook for Alzheimer’s caregivers that will enlighten anyone touched by this debilitating disease. She offers straightforward guidelines for caregivers and their families, important lessons she learned in the eleven years she has been caring for her beloved husband, Marshall Brodien. She writes frankly about: recognizing the warning signs of Alzheimer’s; understanding the disease’s typical progression; managing conflict with family and friends; the importance of caring for yourself; the emotional, physical, and financial costs of caregiving; and how, when, and where to find help– including sound advice on making the critical choice among assisted-living facilities when that time comes.
