As We Cheer in the New Year… Be Kind and Compassionate to Others

As we cheer in the New Year I ask that you please keep in mind that this time of year can be very difficult for many people. I like most have been one of those people though this year I’m feeling good about the new year. I know all too well not everyone is so lucky. Personally, I have several people close to me struggling. Maybe they have lost a loved one, or their goals and plans for 2018 didn’t turn out the way they had hoped, or maybe the sting of being alone has struck them deeply tonight.

It doesn’t matter who you are or if you do or you don’t feel like ringing in the new year with bells and whistle on. Just know deep in your heart you are loved just as you are and you do make a significant difference in this world. Also keep in mind, that you are not alone. Everyone’s feelings are fluid and always changing. That being said, know what you are feeling today will pass and change as well… for good and bad for highs and lows our emotional are forever evolving and that is what makes us human.

r

For those of you celebrating the new year with glee, please find compassion in your heart and actions for those who are not able to express happiness as 2018 rolls out and 2019 takes the stage. Know that none of us are on the high side of life all the time. Pray for and be kind to those who are struggling, as it could be you or someone you love next. Realize we all have more in common than we openly discuss, so be the person you would like to have stand by you if you were down.

I want to thank the Alzheimer’s Speaks community for their support and loyalty. And a special thank you to all of those living with dementia who participate in our Dementia Chats videos as they help so many people around the world better understand the symptoms and needs of those living with diagnosis. I also have to thank Eilon Caspi who co-facilitates Dementia Chats with me along with all those who have been a guest or cohost with me on Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio and last but not least, the organizations, communities, businesses and individuals who have hired me to speak, train or consultant with them.

In closing I want to wish everyone a brilliant 2019. One that fills your heart and mind with joy. One that produces joyful moments that will stay with you in spirit throughout you life.

Cheers to 2019

Art Therapy – Elevating Dementia Care

Join Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio for a Great Conversation

Click Below to Listen

Lori La Bey, host of Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio will talk with Jael Weinberg, an Art Therapist who incorporates the creative process in many forms into her therapeutic work with residents at Aegis Living’s all memory care community, Callahan House. Today we will learn what art therapy is, how it is different from the typical arts and crafts most of us do and what the benefits are from art therapy.

I think you will learn a few new things Like I did that might just change your perception of art used as a form of therapy. We will discuss group sessions to one on ones, how emotions are released and created, as well as how energy levels can be adjusted all while building confidence and social engagement.

Poem About Dementia –

I want to again thank Cheryl Kempner for sharing her beautiful poetry with our community here at Alzheimer’s Speaks.

Her Birthday

Copyright Cheryl Kempner 2018

Like a new born that does not know,

Or a toddler that does not grow.

Her birthday came,

Her birthday went,

But she did not know what wishes were sent.

The mind is fierce and out of sight,

It does not know or care of the heart’s plight.

That we may need to keep moving on,

Or maybe it knows that we must stay calm. 

For we would go mad if we really did know,

That our mind was shrinking and we could not grow.

To new levels of our early existence, 

Or is it aware of our soul’s forever persistence.

Do the flowers, the wishes, the visits or chocolate cake,

Mean anything inside or is it all just fake.

The talking, the laughs, the pictures and more,

Does it tell a story or is it just knocking on a closed door.

To make up for lost time in these last few years,

Few years that to some mean many more tears.

But to other it’s a time to make memories to last,

Moments to take, moments to grasp

The veil has been lifted,

The wall is no more.

The relationship is freed, 

The tension is old lore.

Could there be a message, in disguise,

Or is it just the unraveling of all the lies.

The mind is a vicious thing,

It can take away a human being.

But can it really, as we can feel,

We know what’s what, but how do we deal.

With such thoughts that her birthday came and went,

But does she know what wishes were sent?
