“Please Talk With Us, Not About Us”
A Heartfelt Conversation With Those With Dementia
Participants in the Early Memory Loss Collaborative support groups (for those individuals who have received a diagnosis of dementia) in Asheville NC decided that they wanted to share with others their experience of what it is to live with dementia. Different people from the groups have enjoyed talking at various events over the past year, including the 2012 SE4A Artisan in Aging conference. This video was made at “The Sacred Journey of Dementia” conference in Asheville NC on April 13, 2013. The panelists are Earl Thompson, Jane Garrison, Bill Leavell and Larry Stanley. At the end of the video is a short bio about each person. The panel is facilitated by Jane Sherman who co-facilitates their support groups and founded the Early Memory Loss Collaborative.
Thanks to panelists Earl Thompson, Jane Garrison, Bill Leavell and Larry Stanley; and Jane Sherman Facilitator of this discussion. This information is so important to get out into the world. Please contact Jane Sherman for more information or if you are looking for a great speaker at your next conference or training.
