My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer's Caregiver 

Wednesday, March 9, 2017 | 10:00 am-12:00pm

As part of the March ElderCare Focus Group of Southeastern Wisconsin informational program, join us for a conversation with former governor of Wisconsin Marty Schreiber about dementia. Governor Screiber has seen his wife Elaine gradually transform from the woman who had gracefully entertained in the Executive Residence to one who sometimes no longer recognizes him as her husband. In My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer's Caregiver, Marty candidly counsels those taking on this caregiving role. More than an account of Marty's struggles in caring for his wife, My Two Elaines also offers sage advice that respects the one with Alzheimer's while maintaining the caregiver's health. As two-thirds of those with Alzheimer's are women, he offers special guidance for men thrust into an unexpected job. With patience, adaptability, and even a sense of humor, Marty shows how love continues for his Second Elaine. 

Here's a link to Schreiber's story:

Hillbilly Elegy: Humanities Book Discussion

Monday, March 13, 2017 | 6:30-8:30 pm

Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of poor, white Americans. The disintegration of this group, a process that has been slowly occurring now for over forty years, has been reported with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside.

In HillbillyElegy, J.D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hanging around your neck. This book discussion will be moderated by Professor Russell Brooker from Alverno College.

Russell Brooker is a political science professor at Alverno College. He received his Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Chicago in 1981. At Alverno he teaches a variety of courses on elections, American politics, African American history, and statistics. He is currently writing a book on the American civil rights movement from 1865-1950.
