Poem: The Feathered Watercolor

The Feathered Watercolor

Mom, it has been exactly
7 months,
4 days
and 3 seasons
since you left.

But you are still here.

The doctor delivers
the diagnosis. 
The words are
blunt-force trauma
to my brain:
DeMeNtiA

***

Nurse Francis
empties the pills
from the tidy box
into the palm of your
pleading hand.

The air vent taunts 
its bogus chorus 
and chatter.
You hesitate,
yet you know.
You ask:
“Are the voices real?”
“Are you sure?”
“Why am I here?”

I lie the therapeutic lie;
the lie that contests
the diminishment
of a beautiful mind,
betraying itself.

And your watercolor portrait 
drapes like a curtain 
on the wall under which 
we sat for hours,
sipping our coffee and wine;
your granddaughter curled up
in your motherly arms.

Byline of Maria Claire Wenzel

Prior to pursuing her love of writing and poetry, Maria Claire Wenzel, MSHCA, spent most of her career as a healthcare administrator developing patient assistance programs for individuals with chronic conditions. “The Feathered Watercolor”, was written for and inspired by her beloved mother, who suffers from dementia. When Maria isn’t pondering the million ways to split a vowel, she is feeding her chickens with her husband and daughter on their farm in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

Early or Younger Onset Dementia – Planning for the future

Early or Younger Onset Dementia – Planning for the future

Planning early makes it easier for someone with younger onset dementia to manage their financial, legal and medical affairs now and in the future.

If you have been diagnosed with younger onset dementia, it is important to make important decisions while you still can and while you are legally competent to sign any documents.

Things to think about include:

  • your living arrangements into the future
  • who can have access to your financial accounts
  • having joint signatures on all financial accounts
  • arranging when and how you will access your finances
  • talking to a financial adviser
  • sorting out superannuation, health and income insurance
  • writing or updating your will

If you have been diagnosed with dementia, it’s important to nominate a trusted person to manage your affairs in the future. You can do this through an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA).

All of the above topics are further outlined in our diagram below and addressed via our smart phone App called YourLifeTalks – by choosing the Your Life Wishes Conversation.

Unlock the Benefits of ‘Life’ Storytelling:
Through the power of ‘Life Story’ telling and shared experiences, ‘YourLifeTalks can help overcome feelings of social isolation, providing positive and engaging experiences via our Smart Phone App or our physical ‘playing’ type cards.

Both the App & our Cards contain 50 engaging questions to help ‘kick-start’ interactions, in English, Spanish, Polish, Chinese & Vietnamese with more languages coming soon.

Ideal for all Veterans, Retirees, Seniors or Aged Care settings, family groups or even as a singular activity to counteract periods of ‘lockdown or self-isolation’.

Via our phone App, participants can simply ‘speak’ their answers to our 50 questions, directly into the phone microphone and our Voice-to-Text software will transcribe their responses into the written word and save the result.

To edit your responses simply return to the numbered question, position your cursor where you wish to make your amendment, then either ‘speak’ or ‘type’ your corrections and your responses will be updated & saved.

Dementia Map© Reinvents Access to Dementia Resources

It’s Official and I’m so EXCITED!!!

Dave Wiederrich of MemoryCafeDirectory.com and Lori La Bey of AlzheimersSpeaks.com and have created DementiaMap.com, the first Global Resource Directory and event calendar for families and professionals. The two have taken a simple approach to the often difficult and frustrating process of finding dementia resources, with this free-to-use guide.

Dementia Map Global Resource Directory

There is a common obstacle faced by those diagnosed with a form of dementia, their family caregivers, and professionals seeking information about dementia resources. Many websites require a visitor to provide contact information prior to releasing resource details, which is often viewed by the consumer as uncomfortable and intimidating. Frequently, this is to provide referral fees to a “middleman” organization.

“Dementia Map has been a dream of mine for 36 years,” Lori La Bey notes. That’s when her 30 year journey with her mother’s dementia started. She was totally shocked, frustrated and disturbed by the lack of resources available to those in need. “Even today, most medical professionals can’t guide their patients to where they can find help. It’s not their fault. Nothing like this existed prior to Dementia Map,” she adds.

“We created DementiaMap.com to help families and those seeking resources, a direct connection to products and services providers. We wanted to do that in a nonthreatening fashion,” says Dave Wiederrich. “By creating a simple, direct, and friendly website, both families and professionals can utilize one tool to expand their knowledge base and options for care which are so badly needed. We have gone to great lengths to be clear and concise, knowing those that care have extremely limited time to search for resources.”

Dementia Map Events Calendar

Another key element of the Dementia Map strategy is their comprehensive Events Calendar. An event is a valuable way for individuals living with dementia and those who provide care, to gain important information. By consolidating both in-person and virtual events into one global calendar, even more resources are made available.

Professionals and other event coordinators benefit as well. By having visibility to other events already planned, schedules can be strategically designed to avoid overlap and conflict. This can help increase attendance at in-person events, but also the growing base of online meetings.

The Dementia Map benefits extend to the broader healthcare industry as well. Free and economical plans are critical to level the playing field between large and small services. Families deserve all options so they can make the best possible choice for their loved one in an industry being hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. This enables brands large and small alike to more easily reach their target markets.

DementiaMap.com is free for visitors to search for resources

It offers three ways for companies and professionals to become members of the site. A Starter Plan allows anyone to get the exposure they need and deserve at no cost. The Pro and Featured Plans are paid options with increasingly more promotional features and greater brand visibility throughout the site.

Take Advantage of a Limited Time Discount on Paid Plans

Dementia Map is a joint effort between Dave Wiederrich of Memory Cafe Directory and Lori La Bey founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks. Dementia Map is wholly owned by JADCOM Media LLC, an online media publishing company based in Portland, Oregon.
