Tobyette Wheeler & Percy Jackson
When dementia hits older adults, it can tear families apart—or bring them together. When Tobyette Wheeler Jackson and her siblings realized that their 64-year-old mother had dementia, they decided to come together, literally. At StoryCorps, Tobyette told the story to the husband she met after her mother’s death, Percy Jackson. Recorded in partnership with The Wren’s Nest.
