Healthy Habits: Alzheimer's Caregivers

More than 15.5 million Americans (family members and friends) provide unpaid care for a person with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. Women make up 65% percent of caregivers for people with these illnesses, putting them at the center of the growing Alzheimer’s crisis. Kailen Rosenberg is known as the "Love Architect" and an expert on unconditional love. She is the author of Real Love, Right Now. I had a chance to interview her and Betsy Broyles Arnold, who was caregiver for her mother who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease.

About Kailen Rosenberg: 
Known as “Love Architect” Kailen Rosenberg is more than just a matchmaker but a teacher of “love on a higher level.” She’s been featured as a regular guest on more than 400 print, online, radio and television interviews, including the Today Show, Good Moring America, Cosmopolitan, Men’s Fitness, Marie Claire, Redbook, Self,, the Oprah Winfrey Network, BBC Worldwide, E4, The Huffington Post, and more. 
About Betsy Broyles Arnold
Betsy is the daughter of football icon Coach Frank Broyles who, along with her twin sister, Linda, became the primary caregiver to their mother, Barbara, who lost her battle with Alzheimer’s in 2004.  That experience led her -- together with her sister and father -- to create The Frank and Barbara Broyles Foundation to help families and caregivers who are caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s.
