Our Host, Lori La Bey will talk with Dave Wiederrich the cofounder of Dementia Map global resource directory with Lori. He is also the founder of the Memory Cafe Directory, which is the premier global directory of Memory Cafes.  Dave saw a gap in the industry where so many people were talking about Memory Cafes and the good they were doing, yet he found it wasn’t easy to people to find where they were located. The Memory Cafe Directory now has over 1,000 listings in five countries.

Dave is now launching another directory.  One to help people find support groups which we will talk about today.

We are live today so call in (323) 870-4602

Mom’s Making Memories – Happy Mother’s Day

There Is Nothing Better Than A Mother’s Love

Form my family to yours, Alzheimer’s Speaks wishes all the Moms in the world a very precious day. We hope you know the impact your love and caring kindness has on so many. No matter if you are a birth mom, an adoptive mom, a step mom, a friend who is nicknamed a second mom or considered mom like; maybe you are a woman supporting a stranger in need with a listening ear, hug, or your words of wisdom, a fur babies mom carrying for our animals, as well as those Mother’s who have passed, you will be forever embedded in our hearts.

KNOW YOU ARE A WOMAN FILLING AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT ROLE!

Never under estimate the strength you have within, or the impact and influence you have on other’s lives. Know you matter and are appreciated by more people than than you can imagine. Know your loving presence is strongly needed in our world today and tomorrow. Know you are making a difference in not only our young but our elders. Know your caring spirit leads by example and teaches compassion for others. Know your selfless love shows us how to support others and be oh so proud of their successes.

We love you for all you do and stand for. You are the keeper of our children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, neighbors and strangers. Thank you for being a Mother.

Poem: A Caregiver’s Frustration

A Caregiver’s Frustration

by C. Thomson

I’m filled with despair for what you’ve become,

Because what you’ve become is not my old mum.

You’re no longer there if I hurt; if I weep,

You no longer care if woe robs me of sleep,

I do little things, all the ‘this’ and the ‘thats’,

The washing, the cooking and feeding the cats.

I don’t want reward, I don’t do them for such,

What I desire (and I’m not asking much),

Is a smile a day, just to know that you care,

Just to tell me my mother is still inside there.

Instead there is silence, slammed doors, and a fight,

Anger, frustration, not a smile in sight.

I know in my heart that you’re not to blame;

Dementia is awful, it ruins your brain.

Please know I forgive you. I love you. I do.

My only hope is you still love me too.

Join the WAVE! It’s Simple & Powerful

Coming November 10th!
