Caring Together in Hope is a nonprofit organization inspired by Carol Troxel Hammitt, a caregiver throughout her life as nurse, daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend. Carol developed a virulent form of Lewy Body Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease and passed away four months after her diagnosis. Carol’s family gained a passion for those affected by Lewy Body Dementia and other dementia diseases throughout her illness and understands the sacrifices that one makes as caregiver, in allowing one to remain at home. We endeavor to share what we continue to learn and assist others in order to reduce the caregiver’s burden.
Carol was an Iowa girl who began her life as a caregiver to four children at an early age. In 2002, Carol moved to Roswell, GA. bringing her closer to family. In Roswell, she provided private duty nursing care, following her career path as a registered nurse and became a master bridge player.
Carol has 4 children, 12 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren. Carol’s journey into the Alzheimer’s world began in earnest in 2011 and claimed her life on June 11, 2012.
