Podcast – Alzheimer’s and Grown Kids Moving Out | Alzheimer’s Chronicles Volume 2

Bret and I are back in the car for a very candid and touching conversation about all the changes that have recently happened in our family, including: the status of Bret’s parents and updates on the lives of our children, Brock and Cierra. Will we finally be empty nesters — again?

  • How Bret and I encouraged Bret’s mom to dream
  • The difficult decision Bret had to make in regard to his parents
  • The major change which caused Bret’s mom to be happier than she has been in years
  • The lesson Bret learned, more than all things, during this challenging chapter
  • Brock’s big decision with school and moving
  • What Bret and I have tried to role model to our children
  • What Cierra is doing now since finishing up at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising
  • Why Bret and I are super proud of our kids’ choices in these transitional times
