Shriver To Talk Of His Father
And Alzheimer's Disease


ark Shriver comes to Metro
Detroit on Thursday, Oct.
10, to speak about his father,
Sargent Shriver, and his new memoir,
A Good Man, in an event sponsored
by Jewish Senior Life, Alzheimer's
Association-Greater Michigan Chapter
and JVS's Dorothy & Peter Brown Adult
Day Care Program.
"It is our honor to have such a celeb-
rity to speak about a topic that affects so
many of us, losing that connection to a
loved one due to advancing Alzheimer's:'
says Rochelle Upfal, JSL CEO.
Gayle Burstein of the local Alzheimer's
Association says, "As more families are
facing the challenges of aging issues, our
collaboration and shared missions to
support them through this process are
increasingly important"
Leah Rosenbaum of JVS, says, "Mark
Shriver's message is a powerful remind-
er about the importance of love and
support in caring for family members
with dementia."
Sargent Shriver was diagnosed with
Alzheimer's in 2003; he died in 2011.

Mark Shriver's memoir depicts a won-
derful father-son relationship, explor-
ing the moral principles that guided
his father. Married to Eunice Kennedy,
Shriver was the force behind the cre-
ation of the Peace Corps; he also cre-
ated such programs as the Job Corps,
Head Start and others. He was a U.S.
Ambassador to France and ran in the
1972 presidential election as the run-
ning mate to George McGovern.
His son served in the Maryland
House of Delegates for two terms. He is
currently senior vice president of stra-
tegic initiatives for the charity Save the
Children. In his book and in his talks,
Shriver presents the life lessons his
father bestowed on him and shows how
they apply to all.
The event, including an afterglow
and book signing, begins at 6:30
p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, at Knollwood
Country Club, 5050 W. Maple Road,
West Bloomfield. Tickets are $18 per
person with complimentary valet.
