Our Host, Lori La Bey talks with Lily Morales whose mother has what the doctors believe is Vascular Dementia. Lily is 28-years-old and has been caring for her mother for the last 8 years. She has found that the topic of dementia at her age is taboo with others her age; and she wants to change that by sharing her story. Lily would love to see a cure or a therapy to reverse symptoms so people could retain or reverse cognitive decline to live as independently as possible.  Tuesday we will hear their story.

Song: Halfway to Heaven

“Halfway to Heaven” is a song written for Joyce Ann Barczyk by her husband John Barczyk. There are a lot of songs about Alzheimer’s disease, but John felt there was something missing in all of them – hope. John’s goal was to frame the long hard struggle as a journey with many identifiable steps along the way, and help sufferers and their families find comfort in each successive crisis. When the song was shared with Kaitlin Ridgeway, a board-certified music therapist with Hospice of Michigan, she sang it to Joyce and then to other patients. Kaitlin commented, “I have played that song for other patients and families and every time they find such an emotional connection to the words.”

Kaitlin recorded “Halfway to Heaven” on her phone and sent it to John. John added an introduction he recorded on his phone and some images. That is what you will hear and see in the video above.

Joyce was a wonderful wife to John for over 50 years, a mother to four great kids, and an RN for whom no sacrifice was too great. She had a ready smile that never dimmed and faced her diagnosis with courage and determination. Joyce will be remembered for the comfort and joy she lovingly displayed to others. As a nurse, a friend, a mom, and a grandmother, she was always willing to offer help and support.

Joyce Ann Barczyk, of Lakeville, Michigan, passed peacefully on July 14, 2022 after a long, hard battle with early onset Alzheimer disease.

Today Lori La Bey will talk with Jane Dwinell who is an RN, Unitarian Universalist minister, and an author who lives in Vermont. She and her husband, Sky Yardley, chronicled his years living with dementia in their blog, and then in a book, Alzheimer’s Canyon.

Join the conversation as we learn about Jane and Sky’s journey. 

Feel free to call in and ask you questions or make a comment at (323) 870-4602.

More About the Authors:

Sky Yardley & Jane Dwinell were together for 36 years. They raised two children, for many years had a small farm, and retired in their fifties to travel and do volunteer work. They both had successful careers—Sky as a family mediator, and Jane as an RN, freelance writer, and Unitarian Universalist minister. In 1992, Jane authored Birth Stories: Mystery, Power and Creation. As an avocation together they designed and built seven houses and renovated two others.

Sky was diagnosed with “probable early stage Alzheimer’s disease” in the summer of 2016. He had been showing signs of memory loss since 2012, most significantly since 2015. He was 66 when he was diagnosed. Jane was 62. Sky died in 2021, after chronicling with Jane his five-year decline from this fatal disease, the sixth-leading cause of death in the US.
