Calmer Waters: The Caregiver’s Journey Through Alzheimer’s & Dementia
After spending a decade caring for her husband who died from younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease, Barbra Cohn offers a spiritual and holistic guide to help caregivers feel happier and healthier, have more energy and time for themselves, sleep better, feel more relaxed and confident, and experience inner peace. This presentation includes the author’s compelling story and an overview of her book: inspirational essays and rituals from spiritual leaders, stories from family caregivers, and twenty healing modalities from renowned experts that can be practically incorporated into a daily routine.
Barbra Cohn and her husband Morris were founding members of Congregation Bonai Shalom where their children, Ari and Hillary, became B’nai Mitzvah. She is the blessed grandmother of two granddaughters, and a grandson, and will soon welcome a third granddaughter into the world. Barbra holds a Master’s degree in professional writing, a BA in both English and Religious Studies, and a Certificate in Nutrition. She has been a professional writer for 36 years, and has written hundreds of health and travel articles for national and regional publications. In her spare time, she dances Israeli folk dance, salsa, tango and swing, and hikes the trails of the beautiful Rocky Mountains.
