Annual Good Shepherd Institute Dinner:
Love Is Not A Zero Sum Game: Losing My Wife to Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease
October 27, 2021
Join us for our Annual Dinner with Keynote Speaker: Tom Keane
Last year, Tom featured two pieces in Boston Globe Magazine in January and October, respectively, that initially chronicled his experience of losing his wife to early onset Alzheimer’s Disease and subsequently discussed his grief and what helped him feel less alone. “How could my wife have Alzheimer’s? She was only 56?” Keane writes, as he chronicles the 7 years from recognizing her early onset signs of confusion, to neurologists and researchers, memory care facilities, and ultimately her death.Tom’s unguarded account of his experience as his wife’s caregiver and the decisions you have to make touch on feelings of isolation and loneliness, the continued new realities of daily life as her disease progresses, and what we make from the experience of grief.
