Happy Holidays From Alzheimer’s Speaks

Happy Holidays

From Alzheimer’s Speaks

Wishing you  all the best in the holiday season.  I also want to apologize for being late with my holiday cheer.  It’s not that I wasn’t thinking of you all, but virus got the best of me!

May you ring in the New Year in true form with all those dear to your heart, close to you.  I know for many this can be a sad time of year as well, especially for those who have lost a loved one.  I believe, even those that have passed continue to celebrate with us.  Each year I feel the presence of my folks when I sit still and allow myself to receive their loving gifts and remember our precious holidays of days gone by which have helped mold me into who I am today.

Stay Healthy, Happy and Safe!

The Joy Of Regifting

janess_moms_doll_2

I just love when our community shares

their personal stories!

Here is a note from our good friend Jane Moore after watching  our recent Dementia Chats session on “Moving, Construction and Remodeling” when diagnosed with dementia.

“Very good on Moving, remodeling and construction! I thought you would like to see what I did with my mother’s cherished dolly. Our angel Anita Moran found a new home for her with a lady who had dementia and needed a friend. I felt much better knowing someone would love this doll as mum did! Have a wonderful Christmas Lori and thanks for all your very hard work! xxxxxx”

For those of you who have not watched the latest Dementia Chats, I highly recommend you take the time to do so.  There is wonderful information for those diagnosed, family/friends as well as  professionals.

I think you will find the insights they share so openly and honestly amazing helping you (if you are a family member, friend or professional) look at and deal with these situations in a totally different light.
