Following in her mother’s footsteps
Christine’s caregiver story

The Alzheimer’s Association estimates that 6.2 million Americans above the age of 65, or one in nine people, are living with Alzheimer’s dementia in 2021.1 Christine shares how she cares for her mom Liza, who’s been impacted by the disease, and the values her mother instilled in her that prepared her for this role.

When I think about how I provide care for my mom, I suppose I’m following in her footsteps—doing what I believe in. That is to say, providing a home for her and a place where she feels familiar and comfortable.

Improving surgical recovery
Elizabeth’s Zip skin closure story

After a severe case of tonsillitis, Elizabeth found a cyst on her throat. Surgery was needed to remove the large mass under her chin. Worried about an unsightly scar after surgery, she turned to a cosmetic surgeon she trusts. Watch how Zip helped provide less scars and a quicker recovery.

The removal of Zip after my surgery was pretty easy. It’s just like removing a pretty sticky band-aid.
