Living Fully with Dementia

The Rev. Jane Dwinell and Sky Yardley will speak about their personal experience Living With Dementia. Sky was diagnosed with probable early stage Alzheimer’s disease in the summer of 2016. Since September 2017, they have been speaking at UU churches around the country with hopes to erase the stigma and misunderstandings around dementia. They also have a blog: alzheimerscanyon.blogspot.com. Jane is a retired UU minister and author, and Sky is a retired family mediator. They currently live in Burlington, VT with their son, Sayer, and his partner, Emma. The family enjoys gardening, doing things in and on Lake Champlain, playing interesting board games, and taking in a round of disc golf whenever possible.
