Community Education Series: The Greatest Opportunity

Community Education Series: The Greatest Opportunity


Aging parents require assistance at some point but tend to resist overtures from their children. A healthcare crisis with a positive outcome provides a powerful incentive to open up a dialog.

Speaker: Tracey S. Lawerence, Best Selling Author

About the Speaker:

Tracey S. Lawrence is a woman of many talents. Most of her adult life, she served clients as a graphic artist. That changed when her parents became ill.

Tracey’s journey as a serial caregiver, to her husband (twice: first in 1987, then in 2017), her father (who died in 2004) and her mother (who died in 2015) gives her a unique perspective on life and death. She is quoted as saying “That which does not kill me makes me stranger.”

The bestselling author of the ground-breaking book, “Dementia Sucks: A Caregiver’s Journey – With Lessons Learned,” Tracey shares her discoveries, insights and humor with the world, encouraging people to wake up to the harsh realities of life before they become undeniable. Laughter, compassion and acceptance are part of the recipe required to plan for and survive the current climate of healthcare, illness and the overwhelming nature of it all.
