Description

 

On Saturday, September 11 at 2:00 pm at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, Family Caregivers Rock will be granting John Weyers’ wish. The one-act educational play, Love Survives in the Fog, that John wrote gives a glimpse into his loving journey as a family caregiver as well the journey of a loved one living with dementia.

 

John Weyers had a 30-year career as a nurse in long-term care working with residents living with dementia. When John retired, he never anticipated a 15-year journey as a personal caregiver for his wife, Doris. He finds therapeutic value in journaling and writing about his journey of caring for someone living with dementia. Although this is the first play John has written, he is a published collaborative author in two family caregiving books. John and Doris have been married 51 years and have five children Linda, Barbara, Jim, Lisa, and Jonathon. John is known for his positive attitude and he shares, “Underneath the confusion and anxiety of dementia, love still lives and is felt, if we look and listen for it.”
