I am now living in Park City, Utah and working at the ABC News Station KSL Radio in Salt Lake City.

I am giving a speech this Friday November 22nd in Owosso, Michigan to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Respite Volunteers of Shiawassee. Call 989-725-1127 if you'd like to attend, or email respitevolunteer@frontier.com

I am continuing to write and give lectures about Alzheimer's and creative caregiving.

I am looking forward to enjoying winter in this new snowy landscape.

Here's to a wonderful holiday season.

Watch the Video
Mary Ellen Geist decided to leave her job as a CBS Radio anchor to return home to Michigan when her father's Alzheimer's got to be too much for her mother to shoulder alone.
