My Mother Has 4 Noses Is Back!

Musical Play – One Daughter’s Story of Life with Her Mother Who Has Dementia

Lori La Bey host of Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio interviews Jonatha Brooke, a highly acclaimed singer/songwriter with 4 major label releases, and 9 CDs on her own label, Bad Dog Records.  She has written for film, including Disney’s Peter Pan and Tinkerbell series; TV, including the theme for Joss Whedan’s  Dollhouse; and for other artists – Katy Perry, Madeleine Peyroux, Lizz Wright, Joe Sample.

The interview will focus on Jonatha’s 2014, One-Woman Musical, My Mother Has 4 Noses, which played Off Broadway at the Duke Theater. It was a Critic’s picks in the NY Times, and NY Post and ran for 3 months.  La Bey has personally seen the show several times, with a variety of friends and associates.  Each time, La Bey has been so impressed with the beautiful storyline highlighted through gorgeous music, which allows the audience laugh and cry together, removing the isolation dementia can create.

Lori La Bey of Alzheimer’s Speaks Honored as One of Oprah’s “Health Hero’s”

A Big Thank You to Oprah and Her Team

I can’t put into words how humbled and honored I am to be named one of fourteen people, picked by Oprah and her team as a 2018, “Health Hero.” Being mentioned twice in one year in the “O” magazine is just down right amazing.  Last time, it was for the Memory Cafe’s.  This time, for Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio and Dementia Chats educational video interviews with people who are living with a diagnosis of dementia.

I want everyone involved with the radio show and/or Dementia Chats to know I share this recognition with them.  Everything Alzheimer’s Speaks does is about raising voice and collaboration for the betterment of the worlds dementia care.  So if you have been a guest on Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio,  an expert on Dementia Chats, someone who has joined the conversation by calling in, using the chat box, emailing, texting, using twitter, responding to or sharing a blog post, please know none of this would be possible without you.  From the bottom of my heart I “THANK YOU!”

For this article, they sent me to a 4 hour photo shot… what an experience!  I have a new appreciation for models, photographers and make up artists.  I need to also thank Chad Holder the Photographer and Terra Hinrichs the Hair and Makeup Artist.  What a great team to work with.

Below is the article which featured my work, but please check out the full article with the other thirteen Health Hero’s.
