About Embodied Labs: From caregivers to caregivers

A Journey Through Alzheimer's

Our founder's story

Carrie became a caregiver at 19 when her mom was diagnosed with Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease. She used safety goggles and some tape to help others understand what her mom’s left field visual impairment looked like and improve their care for her.

Carrie's mom would always eat exactly half of her plate at meal time. After her caregivers put on the goggles, they understood why this happened and what they could do about it.
