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.

What if Your Care Partner is No Longer Able to Care For You?

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

Today Lori La Bey, founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks and Dementia Chats, along with Eilon Caspi a Gerontologist and Dementia Behavior Specialist facilitate a conversation with the true experts, those living with a diagnosis of dementia. Thank you to our experts: Truthful Loving Kindness, Bob Savage, Paulan Gordon, Micheal Ellenbogen, Craig Hanke and Harry Urban for their insights on this important topic.

“What if Your Care Partner is No Longer Able to Care For You?”

Todays topic is very important to families. Who are you going to ask to care for you and why? You will see each person with dementia’s has various living situations and relationships with people. Who and why will they pick to care for them? Discussing backup plans and roles is critical and can be uncomfortable, yet well worth the time to discuss in the long run.
