Dating Dementia, an Alzheimer’s & Caregiving Blog

Dating Dementia is the creation of Nancy Wurtzel, a Minneapolis-based blogger, public relations professional, special events coordinator and creative writer.

Born during the baby boom years, Nancy grew up in a small farming town located in central Minnesota.  After college, she escaped to sunny Southern California to try something entirely different.  The plan was to enjoy Los Angeles for a year or two and then return home.

Flash forward 33 years: Nancy, newly divorced and still living in Los Angeles, moves back to her native Minnesota to help care for her aging mother who was living with Alzheimer’s disease.  Mummy, as her family called her, died in late 2013 at age 92.

Surprising even herself, Nancy decided she was happy to make her home in the Midwest once again.  She lives with her dog, Callie, an adorable, but often very naughty, Goldendoodle.

Speaking of adorable, Nancy has a daughter, Katie, who recently graduated from Boston University.  Katie wants to work in the  publishing industry, but is living in her mom’s basement until that happens.  Like her mother, Katie reads far too many books and usually has an outstanding library fine.
