"Determined to continue her husband Glen's quest to educate the world about Alzheimer's Disease, Kim Campbell made it her personal mission to improve the quality of life for people with dementia and their caregivers. In August of 2016, she launched CareLiving, a blog, lifestyle guide and social movement designed to inspire, encourage, and empower caregivers to care for themselves while caring for others. The CareLiving website features articles from Kim and a host of guest writers, specialists, musicians, doctors, and caregivers. Readers can follow Kim through her journey as a caregiver, learning from her challenges and triumphs as she progresses through the many stages of being an Alzheimer's caregiver." -

The Senior List

"Here at, we’re so much more than a website. Our team of experts connect seniors and caregivers to the right products, services, and other resources that make aging just a little bit easier.

Our thriving community is always growing. It’s a place where mature adults and caregivers can discover the latest senior-friendly technologies, engage in meaningful discussions, and find senior discounts, housing, and much more. If ever there was an online community for seniors — is it!

We serve seniors across the great United States and even regions throughout Canada. If you’re looking for expert advice or consumer feedback, or you simply want to plug into a lively community, we invite you to come along and join the conversation."

The Purple Sherpa

Julia Fleming knows that caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or any form of dementia can be a daunting task. She has first-hand experience. When Julia became the sole caregiver for her father, she had to learn by doing. She compares the experience to being taken on an expedition to Mount Everest with zero tools or preparation. Full of practical, wise advice, Julia’s site, The Purple Sherpa, is dedicated to supporting caregivers as they navigate the memory-affecting illnesses of their loved ones.

My Demented Mom

Inspired by her own experience with her mother who suffered from dementia, Kathie Ritchie created her site to help provide insight and resources for young adult caregivers struggling and coping with their role. She covers a wide range of topics and offers empathy and wisdom to anyone on the caregiving journey.

Which Me Am I Today?

Diagnosed with Young-onset dementia in 2014, Wendy Mitchell blogs about her experience in hopes of encouraging readers that “people like me still have a substantial contribution to make; we still have a sense of humour; we still have feelings. I’m hoping to show the reality of trying to cope on a day-to-day basis with the ever-changing environment that dementia throws at those diagnosed with the condition. Living as well as you can with dementia is all about adapting. Adapting to new ways to enable us to live better for longer with dementia.”
