Life Lessons: Eleanor Charboneau’s daughter talks about understanding Alzheimer’s disease
Life Lessons is sponsored by MorningStar Senior Living of Idaho Falls, which offers independent and assisted living for seniors within a beautiful setting. MorningStar celebrates and elevates the lives of those who taught the rest of us how to live.
Life is hard, stressful, fast-paced and can sometimes be overwhelming. That’s why EastIdahoNews.com is partnering with MorningStar Senior Living of Idaho Falls to bring you Life Lessons.
We’re asking MorningStar residents to share gems of wisdom every Tuesday with us. Some of their answers will make you laugh, some may make you cry, some may even change your life.
A few weeks ago we introduced you to Kathy Kunzel and her mother Eleanor Charboneau. Eleanor has been battling Alzheimer’s over the years and her family recently decided to move her into the Memory Care Unit at MorningStar. James Johnson runs the memory care unit and joined us for the conversation.
In part of our interview, Kathy explains how her family knew it was time to have her mother receive outside help and she shares advice for other families in similar situations.
