Barbara Ivey (@alzbarbie) writes THE PERFECT THING blog for people with a parent diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and a parent who is their Caregiver.  Barbara’s belief is that Caregivers-to-Caregivers experience Alzheimer’s differently from their Caregiver.  This means they need different resources during and following their journey.  Barbara is dedicated to sharing those resources – those Alzheimer’s life-preservers – because she believes they might actually help save the lives of Alzheimer’s Kids. Based in Fort Mill, SC, Barbara Ivey is the author of Patterns in Time® and Patterns at Hand, which were both published in 2017.
