A BIG THANK YOU to Dr. Lakelyn Hogan Eichenberger with Home Instead who invited me on her live video chat to discuss early diagnosis and why it’s so important. So many people worry about changes in cognition from individuals who are sensing a change in their own lives, to family and friends. This chat will give you some ideas of common changes people question, what could be causing the changes, who to go see if you are concerned, to how to approach the conversation with a loved one, and even how to respond to someone who is telling you they are worried about cognitive changes.

Please Share & Pass This Great Conversation Onto Others

When Dementia Takes a Back Seat To Other Health Issues Plus Examples of Misperceptions, Hallucinations, Delusions and Misunderstandings On Dementia Chats™ Today our experts living with dementia give us great examples of situations where dementia can be ignored, or not acknowledged when other health issues pop up. They also give us great examples of the differences between hallucinations, delusions, misunderstandings and misperceptions.

Today we will be talking with Rosanne Corcoran on Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio.  She cared for her mother over a 12-year span.  Rosanne started as a stealth caregiver, then she became a full-time caregiver, and then she became an in-home, sandwich caregiver for her mother’s final 6 years.

Rosanne created Daughterhood The Podcast: For Caregivers after experiencing first-hand the stress and isolation caregiving brings, along with the lack of meaningful resources for caregivers. The podcast cultivates a dynamic group of subject matter experts to help listeners navigate these uncharted, and many times, tumultuous waters.

We are live today so call in and join the conversation!

Poem: The Unfamiliar Unknown

Here is another beautiful poem from one of our community members, Jane Perez and she is the daughter of a mother who has been living with dementia for approximately 10 years.  Jane has written poetry as a hobby and for therapy most of her life. This poem is from what Jane can only imagine it must feel like to be living with dementia as it progresses. Enjoy.
