My name is Sylva Dneboská, I am from Prague, the capital of the Czech Rebublic, I am retired. During my active life I worked in the insurance industry which I left at the end of my career and started to work in social care. When my husband Miloš was diagnosted with Alzheimer's disease, I started to take care of him, what I had been doing for more than 7 years. At the beginning I continued working part time, but later on I took 100 per cent care of him.
At that time, I started to cooperate with some organisations providing care to people with dementia, in order to learn as much as possible about this subject e.g. with a daily stationary for people with Alzheimer's disease in Prague called "Senorina Center" as well as with the Czech Alzheimer Society situated in Prague. I am still in touch with both of them.
Despite of the fact that my husband passed away in May, 2022, I am in touch with people of different ages who are taking care of their partners, parents, family members, friends and can be of some assistance to them. I would like to share my experience with you, the group members, and learn from you a lot of useful and interesting things.

Sylva was nominated by Česká alzheimerovská společnost (Czech Alzheimer Society).
