In New York State, 400,000 people are living with Alzheimer’s Disease, and an additional one million people are tending to them with unpaid care. But help is available from organizations like Sunnyside Community Services. The nonprofit runs Care NYC, a services and support program for caregivers available to English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole speakers across New York City. Our guests this week are Roy Capps, the Caregiver Educator for Care NYC and Carma Augustin, who’s caring for her mom with Alzheimer's.
