AlzAuthors is a not-for-profit, online global community of more than 300 authors writing from personal experience about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. We strive to eliminate the silence and stigma surrounding one of the most important diseases of our generation, estimated to affect 50 million people worldwide. We have curated hundreds of powerful and profound stories spanning all disease types and stages. Through our stories, we light the way for others on a similar path to show them: You are not alone.


Featuring Marianne Sciucco, RN

Podcast producer and host Marianne Sciucco is a co-founder and director at AlzAuthors and a registered nurse who cared for hundreds of dementia patients over a 20-year career. She provided care to her stepfather during his dementia journey and witnessed the painful decline of four beloved aunts to the disease. Her novel, "Blue Hydrangeas, an Alzheimer’s love story" is based on a couple she met through her work and is a testament to the power of love in the face of this heart-wrenching disease.

Christy is a Licensed Educational Psychologist (LEP), retired school psychologist, author, speaker and coach/consultant. Her book, “Building a Legacy of Love: Thriving in the Sandwich Generation” recounts her journey as a working mother of two who also managed the care of her parents, both of whom had some form of dementia. Combining her lived experience with her professional expertise in human development, wellness and a strengths based approach to finding solutions, Christy develops content, workshops and coaching to support Sandwiched families. She incorporates meditation, mindfulness and other evidence based mind/body practices into her work. She’s worked with care communities, financial professionals, estate planners and employers. Christy has a master’s degree in counseling psychology, and graduate credentials in both education and school psychology.

About Untangling Alzheimer's & Dementia Podcast 

We know the pain of being forgotten by someone we love.

Let us help light your way through Alzheimer’s and dementia.

We have all witnessed a decline.

Many of us have provided countless hours of caregiving and recognize that millions of others have too.

In each podcast episode, we interview one of our authors who may have written a memoir, caregiver guide, novel, children’s book, activity guide, poetry book, or blog. Their backgrounds are diverse, and their situations vary - it may be someone living with the disease, a caregiver for a loved one at home or in a facility, or a professional carer. All have joined AlzAuthors because dementia impacted their lives, and they wish to help others through the disease. Their personal stories offer insight, often told through laughter and sometimes tears.

Whether you are a caregiver, a family member, or living with dementia, you’ll find revelations, wisdom, and understanding from decades of caregiving.

May one of our authors speak to your experience.

Managed by eight volunteers who have all witnessed the loss of a loved one with dementia, AlzAuthors provides access to quality resources that answer your questions and offer knowledge, comfort, and support. Visit our website, alzauthors.com to find the web’s most comprehensive collection of books and blogs on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia all in one place.
