Susan is an American artist, jewelry designer, and writer, has lived in Bali for 26 years. She has 14 years experience as the primary caregiver for her husband, Bob. She also writes a recipe column for the Bali Advertiser.
Susan and her husband Bob had a dream to live in another country and learn another language. Together they forged a life in Bali. Ten years later Bob showed signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
Susan vowed to keep Bob with her in Bali and give him the best life possible. From that experience she created a blog called “Alz World,” writing about being a caregiver and hoping to inspire other caregivers. “Tell your loved one you love him, over and over, each time you visit,” Susan writes in one of her blogs. “Don’t expect anything in return. But know that your love seeps in and caresses his or her spirits.”
