All women are invited to Savvy Women Exchanging Relevant Views to hear Bainbridge resident Rosalys Peel relate how for nearly 10 years she and her late husband Mike “hoped beyond hope” that they could continue to live together at home despite his Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis.

SWERV will meet from 10:30 a.m. to noon Tuesday, March 10 at Filipino American Hall for the presentation, “Living a Fuller Life Despite Alzheimer’s.”

After Mike died in 2011, Rosalys turned to her journal and memories to write “Mike and Me” in order to give hope that the journey with this difficult disease does not have to be all we fear: “Even in the last year we were still enjoying most days in ways that often defied conventional wisdom.” Laughter and the rituals of hugs and kisses mattered.

Drawing on her experience as an adult educator, Peel is reaching out to share her insights, as well as the latest research, convinced that we are all in this fight together.
