Introduction
 
Recently Homeless Rose Lamatt spent
14 years as an Alzheimer's caregiver, then became Homeless.
 
She spent a large part of her life in fear, panic attacks, and agoraphobia, until she learned, change your thought, change your life.
 
She knows life can change in the blink of an eye. ‘You think you know where you are headed, then POW you're knocked off that solid piece of ground you thought you were on.’
She worked in health care: assisted living, adult day care, and volunteered for Alzheimer’s support groups. Now she writes, sharing what she’s learned, hoping to help others.
