Famous author Anaïs Nin said:
“We don’t see the world as it is, we see it as we are”.
Seeing ourselves clearly empowers us to see the world around us more clearly.
“I’ve had the pleasure of welcoming Sue to our community and speaking with our population on the topics of caregiving and navigating physical and cognitive changes. Sue speaks with authority, is non-judgmental, and compassionate to the experiences of others. Several of our residents approached me after Sue has spoken and told me how much they loved Sue and the message she brought to them.
As someone who is still walking the caregiving journey, Sue is a beacon of light for those who fear the uncertainty that dementia brings. The message she delivers is one filled with hope, support and love. Her book, Our Journey of Love: 5 Steps to Navigate your Caregiving Journey, describes her experience and is a wonderful resource. I recommend her very highly for any endeavor she chooses to undertake.”

“We have known Sue for several years. Jack and Sue came at first just to find answers at the Alzheimer’s Support Network. They then began getting support from the various groups and our team.
As Sue says: “I would not be where I am on our journey, and I don’t believe Jack would be in as great a place as he is on his journey, without all the love, support and guidance you so compassionately and knowledgeably share.”
Sue is now giving back to the community and on a one to one basis.
She gives back because she’s walked the journey.”

Her review began with a quote from my book:
“Massive acceptance awakens me to the potential of my experience. Radical presence gives me clarity in the fullness of my experience.”
Mikki’s review states: “That beautiful, inspiring, contemplative quote was created by my cherished friend, Sue Ryan, truly one of the kindest persons on this earth. To be in Sue’s presence is to be blessed and inspired by the generosity of her spirit and by the manner in which she chooses to live her life. She wrote this book in the spirit of sharing her love and her truth.
Although Sue’s journey is grounded in her experiences with her Dad and her husband and Alzheimer’s, it is a book for us all. I was the sole care giver to my Mom in her late years, who was joyfully blessed with a very sharp mind till her passing…, just a failing body. One of the most challenging times of my life, yet one of the most rewarding. For most of us, we are or will be or have been care givers and this book is a soulful journey into all the feelings and thoughts experienced at the varied stages of this role. I encourage EVERYONE to read this book, to be inspired and to give it as a gift to ANYONE. It is simply timeless!”
