Dr. Tia Powell is the author of the brand new book "Dementia Reimagined: Building a Life of Joy and Dignity from Beginning to End". Despite being a physician and a bioethicist, she wasn't prepared to address the challenges she faced when her grandmother, and then her mother, were diagnosed with dementia--not to mention confronting the hard truth that her own odds aren't great. Dr. Powell's goal is to move the conversation away from an exclusive focus on cure to a genuine appreciation of care--what we can do for those who have dementia, and how to keep life meaningful and even joyful. Her book can be pre-ordered from Amazon and other book sellers.Find out more about the Zestful Aging Podcast at, and become a patron at
