Keynote Address


Carolyn Birrell, Author of Walking with Fay: My Mother’s Uncharted Path Into Dementia

Carolyn Birrell retired to Bonners Ferry, ID, after spending 20 years in Atlanta, GA, working for the American Cancer Society and then as a real estate agent. Soon after her move, she relocated her aging mother to be near her and spent the next eight years caring for her while learning “all things dementia.”

What began as a written collection of her mother’s difficult behaviors during dementia’s earliest stages quickly turned into a comprehensive book that she continued to update until the inevitable end of her mother’s disease.
