In Case I Forget by Norrms Mc Namara

In case I forget when glancing at you,
The one who makes me complete,
Dementia may have won with my mind,
But my heart it will never Defeat,

In case I forget the children we`ve raised,
Or the hundreds of stories I’ve told,
Shed not a tear “For blessed are we,
Who forget one day we are old,

In case I forget to tell you how much,
You’re cherished and treasured each day,
My best friend beside me to brighten the path,
And carry me all of the way,

I may greet you someday, with questioning eyes,
As a stranger with whom I’ve just met,
Still, I love you my darling, with all of my heart,
Please Remember…… In case I forget

Have You Seen My Independence? by Norrms Mc Namara

Have you seen my Independence?
I can’t find it so?
I used to be right here with me,
But now I do not know?

One day there I was,
As confident as can be,
The next always surrounded,
And never only me

Oh, how I long,
To walk the meadows grass,
To sit down on a bench alone, 
And watch the seagulls pass

To get my morning paper,
To read along the way,
With nobody else, that’s right, just me!
Oh Lord, for just one day

I love my family dearly,
And they are always there,
But they must get fed up too,
Of sharing all this care,

I was so incredibly Independent
And you all will know,
Have YOU SEEN my independence?
Oh dear, where did it go ??

Exploring Lewy Body, Loved Ones and Poetry

Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio – Shifting dementia care from crisis to comfort around the world one episode at a time by raising all voices and delivering sounds news, not just sound bites.

Listen in. I know you will be glad you did!

The Radio Show Goes Live – Thursday – Nov, 14th 2019 2pm EST, 1pm CST, 12pm MST, 11am PST & 7pm London and on Nov. 15th at 6am in Australia

Lori La Bey host of Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio talks with poet Su Croll who shares her experience of caring for her Father with Lewy body dementia.  Her prose express the range of emotions when caring for someone with a chronic illness and insights as to the caring journey itself from many angles.  Listen in anytime once the show goes live as all episodes are archived for your convenience.

Hands and Face by Su Croll

It is true. I will remember the hands and face.

The whole frustrating trickery of the thing.

My mother tells how she dogged him

to get all numbers limned at their true points.

Noon and midnight made for due north.

Six headed south. The clock becoming

a demented compass, a supposed proof

fumbled for in that doctor’s office

right before my dad was officially diagnosed.

I don’t know where his attempted drawings

of clocks are today. I don’t know how

that suddenly uncertain face triggered

his ragged response. Three and nine left off

or the hands wayward and drawn in the blank

outside the clock. I don’t know why that wrong

clock condemned him, tripped him up, making

that day the day they told us with all certainty

it was dementia.

Here’s a bit more about the World Dementia Council (WDC)

The World Dementia Council helps change the lives of people with dementia by securing change internationally working with international governmental and non-governmental organizations. Through the collaborative strength of governments, industry, researchers and health and social care systems all working together we can transform the prospects for people affected by dementia in all its forms, so that the disease no longer negatively impacts on lives in the way it does today.

The World Dementia Council was established by the G8 (now G7) at the London Dementia Summit in 2013. The council has 24 members drawn from around the globe. At the London summit the G8 made historic commitments to improve the lives of people affected by dementia today and to speed up the development of disease modifying drugs so that the first treatment is available by 2025. The role of the World Dementia Council is to challenge and support international governmental organization to realize and accede these ambitions. Through monitoring progress, identifying what further international action is needed and building, expanding and nurturing global networks the World Dementia Council helps galvanize global efforts to beat dementia.
