DAA’s Conference – Practical Solutions For Living Well With Dementia

Tuesday – July 26th, 2022 – 1pm EST, 12pm CST, 11am MST, 10am PST & 7pm London GMT, 8pm South Africa SAST, and on the July 27th at 5am in Australia AEDT

Watch the Video Interview Below

Our Host, Lori La Bey will be talking with representatives of Dementia Action Alliance, known as DAA, about their upcoming conference being held September 19-21, 2022, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Union Station in Downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.

Laurie Scherrer was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s & FTD at the age of 55 and was able to continue a professional career so she turned her focus towards helping others through their dementia journey. Laurie serves on the Dementia Action Alliance Board of Directors and Advisory Board.  She is a Dementia Mentor, Purple Angel and active in many support groups. She is frequently a cohost of Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio and a panel member for Dementia Chats which highlights voices of dementia and their amazing insights.   She is an international speaker and has been featured in many articles and documentaries including New York Times, AARP, PBC, Dementia 101, South Africa Sunday Times, and the Reading Eagle. 

John-Richard Pagan is living with Lewy Bodies Dementia.  He no longer fears his dementia diagnosis, in large part due to Dementia Action Alliance. Having attended the last conference, held in Atlanta, Georgia, John-Richard’s care partner Diana ended the conference with an unexpected closing as she expressed their growth in understanding, as well as in the desire to be true advocates at living better lives today with a dementia diagnosis.

Cyndy Luzinski is an advanced practice nurse and the founder and executive director of Dementia Together, a nonprofit organization in Northern Colorado which cultivates joy while building stronger connections for those living with dementia, their care partners, and the community.

Enhanced Reading Option For Those Living With Dementia Who Still Love To Read

Kirk House Publishers is proud to present the Reminisce Line of Dementia-Friendly Books.

Listen to the Audio Interview Above

OR

Watch the Video Interview Below

Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio host, Lori La Bey talks with Ann Aubitz the Co-owner and Publisher of Kirk House Publishers and Fuzion Press, located in Burnsville, Minnesota. Ann is proud to present the Reminisce Line of reader-friendly books. La Bey can’t wait to share this new line of books that fills a huge hole for those living with dementia and also many elder avid readers whose find the typical offerings either too difficult or too easy to read.

About the New Line of books

Kirk House Publishers is proud to present The Reminisce Line of reader-friendly books. Written by Kirk House authors, the stories are set in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s in an easy-to-read, short-story format. Large type and full-colored illustrations make the stories accessible to all readers, many of whom may have their own special memories of those periods of history.
Reminisce books by Kirk House Publishers is a line of dementia-friendly books written by amazing authors. Each book is printed in large type on white stock for easy reading. The words “large print” will appear on the book but never the words Dementia or Alzheimer’s. Each of the books in the series will include ten stories of 1500 to 3000 words written by some of the best authors in their genre. Images are placed throughout the book along with several full-color pages. These books are conversational and easy to follow, for those who love reading as much as we do.

Here’s What Our Founder Had To Say About The Reminisce Books Series

“When Ann Aubitz from Kirk House Publishers called me about the new line of books she was publishing for older readers, my ears perked up. I knew this was an underserved market. Ann explained her series would be different from the books currently available.

Her books were actually inspired by an elder, her 96-year-old mother, who still enjoys reading. I was excited to review the books myself, as so often books for our elders have small print, they are hard to hold, or have storylines that are too complicated to comprehend, or on the other side, they are overly simplified and child-like.

What I found was Ann’s books (the Reminisce book line) were designed to be dignified and intriguing. In addition, they would meet multiple needs: Large print for older eyes. The Larger-sized book makes it easier to hold as it is common for fine motor skills to decline as we age. Intriguing storylines for all ages. This allows flexibility to share intergenerationally, allowing grandma or grandpa to read to their grandchildren, or their grandkids can read the book to their grandparents; if they are in the mood to share. Along the lines of intergenerational, the books also can teach children a bit about the past and engage in conversation about the good old days that elders refer to.

These books are ideal for a wide range of people and abilities of various ages, and for those with early cognition issues, they are IDEAL! The stories are set in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s in an easy-to-read, short story format in the genres we love, mystery, romance, ghost stories, and science fiction. Large type and full colored illustrations make the stories accessible to all readers, many of whom may have their own special memories of those periods of history. This series will meet a wide range of needs, enabling many people who love to read to continue having that pleasure. I highly recommend the Reminisce book line for your special someone that still loves to read.”
~Lori La Bey, founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks.
