BONITA SPRINGS, Fla., March 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A vast burden sits
on the shoulders of caregivers for those with Alzheimer's disease and
related dementias. That's why Oasis Senior Advisors is teaming up with
Seth Rogen's nonprofit Hilarity for Charity and healthcare author Jennifer
L. FitzPatrick to launch a free virtual book club for dementia caregivers
based on FitzPatrick's book "Cruising Through Caregiving: Reducing
the Stress of Caring for Your Loved One."
Club participants will meet online for 15 weeks beginning May 15 to discuss
topics addressed in the book, including how to pay for care and how to
balance caregiving with a career.
"We're thrilled to provide help for a growing segment of the population
facing a tremendous challenge," Oasis Senior Advisors CEO Tim Evankovich
said. "As our population ages and dementia becomes more common, more
caregivers require support for the stressful work they do every day."
"Cruising Through Caregiving" is a down-to-earth yet authoritative
guide to becoming a responsible, loving dementia caregiver without being
overcome by guilt, exhaustion or worry. It calls upon advice and resources
from FitzPatrick and 24 other professionals to help caregivers maintain
their health, relationships, financial stability and more.
FitzPatrick is a gerontology instructor at Johns Hopkins University and
a regular contributor to national media on dementia and caregiving issues.
She's also a certified speaking professional with a master's in social
work and broad firsthand experience as a caregiver.
Rogen and wife Lauren Miller Rogen founded Hilarity for Charity, which
benefits families struggling to provide care for loved ones with Alzheimer's
disease, funds Alzheimer's prevention research, promotes brain health
education and bolsters support groups. The Golden Globe-nominated actor
and comedian has helped raise more than $10 million through an annual
Hilarity for Charity comedy show now streaming on Netflix.
"It's exciting to see so many talented and influential people recognize
the value of helping those with Alzheimer's and dementia as well as their
families," Evankovich said. "We're dedicated to providing no-cost
help for seniors and families, and to sticking with them every step of
