Update on Our Dementia Friendly Cruise

Update On Our Dementia Friendly Cruise

Here at Alzheimer’s Speaks we take our commitment to “Dementia Friendly Travel” very seriously.   We are finding the need to clarify our relationship going forward with Kathy Shoaf, Elite Cruises and Vacations, LLC, and Cruise Planners/American Express who we used as our travel agent on our first cruise to the Caribbean last month.  The need for clarification is due to two major factors.

1)    There is much confusion and misconceptions in dementia communities around the world, about Alzheimer’s Speaks involvement with future Dementia Friendly Cruises being marketed by Kathy Shoaf, Elite Cruises and Vacations, LLC, and Cruise Planners/American Express. To clarify, Alzheimer’s Speaks has never been involved, nor will we be involved in their future events.

2)    Due to an overwhelming response for Alzheimer’s Speaks to provide additional Dementia Friendly Travel, we have decided to do so under the titles of “Dementia Friendly Travel with Lori La Bey”and/or “Dementia Friendly Travel with Alzheimer’s Speaks,” so there will be no confusion going forward.  This decision was not made lightly as it was after serious review of feedback from our dementia friendly program team and many attendees.   We are honored and vow to hold to a high standard of providing Dementia Friendly Travel in the future.

Although the symposium and programs were highly rated, and many told us they can’t wait to do it again, we can’t apologize enough to those of you who had difficulties in any fashion regarding the cruise.  Please know we have meticulous notes to improve the travel process, communication chains and our programming; to make our next venture even more fun and resourceful than the last.

Thank you again, for your understanding and your continued support of Alzheimer’s Speaks. 

We are truly humbled and honored in your faith is us and promise to always continue to raise the bar when it comes to dementia. 

We Still Owe You a Beautiful Article on Our Dementia Friendly Cruise.

Again I would like to Acknowledge

Push Research Forward – Join the A-List

We’ve all wrestled with a guilt trip – aging parents or a sick spouse who fear that we will not respect their wishes to stay at home. Statistics reaffirm that seventy-five percent of families try to do just that, despite the physical and emotional challenges of 24/7 dementia care. Often families turn to outside professional home care support.

Please take our A-LIST needs assessment survey and let us know your opinions on paid nursing support.

Decisions about care are deeply personal for those living with dementia and their families. I know from experience that there are no easy answers. Whether you are living with dementia, are a current or past caregiver, or just concerned about your memory, please take this survey and let us know what matters to you when it comes to professional home care.

24/7 care is often central to the Alzheimer’s experience. Every one of us facing this challenge – patients and care partners alike – strives to honor and help our loved ones live well with dementia. Home care providers and policy makers want to know what matters most to the A-LIST.

The 12 Days of Christmas Care Partnering Song©

 

On the 1st day of Christmas my Angel Gave to me

(And) a mind set to embrace change

On the 2nd day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me

Grace to let go

On the 3rd day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me

Coping skills

On the 4th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me

Look for the joy

On the 5th day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me

Great Insights

On the 6th day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me

Gratitude and love

On the 7th day of Christmas the Angle Said to me

Savor each moment

On the 8th day of Christmas the Angle Gave to me

Hope and compassion

On the 9th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me

Live to be playful

On the 10th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me

Self care is (cares) important

On the 11th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me

Perfect doesn’t matter

On the 12th day of Christmas the Angel Saw in me

My sanity is back!

J. Arthur’s Memory Cafe

Dedicates a Song to

the UK Memory Cafes

In celebration of the holiday season, we at J. Arthur’s Memory Café in Roseville, Minnesota felt it was only right to show our appreciation to the UK Memory Cafés for so graciously sharing their Memory Café Concept with us. 

We are filled with Gratitude!

Although many of our members were not able to join us due to busy holiday schedule, others gladly came out to show their support in our silly but very sincere video to the UK. 

Below are the lyrics to:
