Women to Women – Loretta Woodward Veney

Tue Feb 15 | 6:30 - 8:30 pm, Baxter Hall

Join us for a potluck, book signing, and an evening with our own Loretta Woodward Veney.

Throughout her life, Loretta Woodward Veney, author of Being My Mom’s Mom and her new book Refreshment for the Caregiver’s Spirit, has chronicled family events through journals, photos, and videos, seeking to capture every moment. After receiving the news in 2006 that her beloved mother Doris was the first female in the family to suffer from dementia, Loretta began documenting the details of doctor visits and recording people, places, and things as a substitute for lost memory.

Loretta is a motivational speaker and trainer who has delivered more than 270 speeches and presentations on dementia and caregiving and offers a wealth of encouragement for her audiences. Loretta and her mom have been featured in articles in the Washington Post, the NY Times and a PBS special featuring Alzheimer’s Caregivers.

What to Bring (by Last Name): A-D Drinks, E-J Salad, K-Q Main dish, R-Z Sweets.
