Feeling Grateful on Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving I am truly focused not only being thankful and grateful for my wonderful family and friends but all the amazing people that visit and support all of Alzheimer’s Speaks platforms. Your comments, likes and shares continue to expand our reach and help us shift dementia care from crisis to comfort around the world.

My sincere gratitude goes out to all the people I have been lucky enough to interview over the years. Each person sharing their authentic voice how dementia and/or caregiving has impacted their life. Each giving us tips and resources to help us all live graciously together.

To all the organizations who have hired me to do keynotes, training and/or consulting for staff, families, management and communities.

I pray that each of you have an amazing day that carries over for the remainder of the holiday season and into the new year.

For those missing loved ones that have passed, like I am, I hope you find a calmness knowing none of us can feel great loss without first having great love. May that knowledge bring you a peacefulness and calmness to you.

Please know you have and will always continue to matter to us here at Alzheimer’s Speaks. Sending love and blessing to each and everyone of you.

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.

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.
