On Monday, February 21st at 10:00AM PT/1:00PM ET on Presidents Day, former President Ronald Reagan's daughter-famous author Patti Davis, will conduct an online interview with Chinese American translator Lily Liu, who also takes care of her mother with dementia for a long time. This interview is hosted by the "Lohas 50 Plus". Davis will share her journey of caring for her demented father and introduce her 13th best-selling book, Floating in the Deep End.

In 1994, five years after resigning from the presidency, Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the United States, announced in a handwritten letter that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. "I am about to embark on my own sunset journey, but I know that for America there is always a bright dawn ahead," he wrote in the letter. President Reagan died of pneumonia in 2004 after a decade of battling illness.

"During the ten years of my father's illness, I felt as if I was floating in the abyss, or being tossed by the waves, or being swept away by the current, but not drowning." Davies, the daughter of President Ronald Reagan, has been writing a diary since 2004, recording the life of caring for her father with Alzheimer's disease. She has also been a guiding light for many dementia caregivers through her continuous speaking and writing over the years.

In an online interview on February 21, Davis will share the challenges of caring for her demented father and how to deal with social, physical, psychological and financial pressures. She describes and analyzes Alzheimer's disease from a unique perspective and advises family caregivers at each stage from initial diagnosis to subsequent progression.

Lectures are conducted in English, with Mandarin translation, and open for questions and answers. This will be a wonderful and touching conversation. The number of places is limited, please register first to get the link to participate.
