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.

March 2017: I will be a presenter at the 2017 Aging in America Conference in Chicago. I will be showcasing 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.
