Susie Singer Carter & Don Priess
Susie Singer Carter and Don Priess are close friends who have both been caregivers for family members diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. On this episode of How We Got Here, Susie and Don talk about how they met and the real-life story that inspired the creation of their Oscar-qualified short film, My Mom and the Girl, starring Valerie Harper. They also discuss the harmful assumptions that are made about those living with Alzheimer's and recall some of the people they've met who have forever-changed the way they think about this disease -- for the better. Susie and Don share what they've learned about themselves through both their caregiving experiences and their podcast, Love Conquers Alz. Listen to Susie and Don's podcast, Love Conquers Alz.
