My Mother Has Inspired Many

Today Mom Is The Symbol Of Alzheimer’s Speaks

great escape article mom and me on website

But Growing Up I Always Knew…

She Was More Than My Mom

My Mom Dorothy Moeschter was a very special woman.  She was loving, fun and strict.  Organized and messy.  She engage all and was one of the fist to reach out to help those in need.  Mom believed in our democratic process and I can only imagine what she is thinking looking down on the world of politics today. She took a true interest in people and volunteered in a variety of circles from school, church, government, girl scouts and boy scouts, hockey and various boaster clubs.  Mom was well liked and had a great laugh.  Entertaining and sales were a passion for her and she was so much more until dementia showed up. 

mom_family_pics_1

Although the Alzheimer’s disease took much from mom and our family over 30 years, there was much that stayed untouched.  Our hearts and souls. Mom’s fun loving approach to life lived on strong throughout the dementia journey…even at the end.

Sometimes Our Family Focused

On What Was Gone Instead What’s Left

It was the rest of us who sometimes focused on what was gone, and than we missed all that was left. We had to learn to look for different things: the slight smile, the glint in the eye, the giggle, the touch and the word(s) that make your heart melt and connect us on a deeper level.

Here is just one example of Mom’s infectious love and joy.

Even when my Mother was dying she was teaching my family about the circle of life and how to care for those at the end of their journey here on earth. Even for her obituary I couldn’t resist continue moms teaching by adding the Purple Angel to her announcement.

LA Times Cover’s Cruise For Those Living With Dementia & Their Families

la_time_by_line_050417_

Lori La Bey, founder of a Minnesota-based organization called Alzheimer’s Speaks, maintains an online community in which patients and their caregivers “meet” and discuss common challenges.

Now she plans to bring them and others together on a weeklong Eastern Caribbean cruise in November.

The Dementia Friendly Symposium & Cruise will feature chats in which Alzheimer’s patients discuss how they live with the disease and what strategies they use to focus on what they want to do rather than on what they can no longer do. READ FULL ARTICLE
