Media Appearances

If you are a member of the media interested in interviewing me about The Memories Project blog, family caregiving or Alzheimers/dementia, please contact me directly at joyjohnston.com or joyjohnston.writer@gmail.com. All requests will be responded to promptly. Thank you.

June 2017: I was interviewed by Huffington Post senior writer Ann Brenoff for an article about the challenges family caregivers face when their loved one chooses to die at home. Read When Loved Ones Die at Home, Family Caregivers Pay the Price.

March 2017: I was a poster presenter at the 2017 Aging in America Conference in Chicago. I showcased Respite Care Share, a concept that was a top 10 finalist in OpenIDEO’s end-of-life care challenge.

April 2014: I wrote a guest blog post for the Georgia chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, to help promote the release of, “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Living with Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias.”

August 2013: My family’s story is featured on the Alzheimer’s Prevention Initiative’s website as part of their campaign to inspire people to join the Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry.

February 2012: The Memories Project blog was featured on NPR’s Shots blog, in a post titled, “The High Price Of Caring For A Loved One With Alzheimer’s”. My thoughts on the emotional and financial costs of Alzheimer’s on families are included in the interview.
