Several Songs on Dementia and Caregiving

Thank you Bakhus Saba and friends for these beautiful songs that touch our heart. You might want a tissue handy. I know I needed a couple.

If you have a loved one who is no longer able to live at home or if you wonder what life might be like for others who can no longer live independently, this is a must listen to song.

Will you be moved to carve out time for a visit? Even a stranger can lighten a day of another. Will you be that stranger or friend?

Below is a song for those that care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia.

Alzheimer’s / Dementia – Knows No Borders

Below is a great tribute to so many. I was so proud my own mother was able to be part of this beautiful song.

Dementia – Younger Onset

Another beautiful song about Younger Onset dementia.

Stay for a Little While

This song below sings about how children have such a great impact on our elderly.

Children Caregiver – What a Great Musical Video

Children Caregiver –

What a Great Musical Video

Daylight(  DAYLIGHT.).Bring in the sunshine

Make me smile.(MAKE ME SMILE)……Stay for a little while

I’m so glad……..you came by today

I don’t get……..much company these days

I’m old, and I lose my way……..yes I lose my way

 

Sunshine(SUNSHINE)……..Bring in the daylight

Make us smile.(MAKE US SMILE)…..Stay for a little while

It’s so good……..to see the both of you, (Grand Ma, AND Grand Pa)

In my life…….there’s always time for you

I’m young, and you can teach me.  So much to teach me

 

Bridge

If only for a moment, I could see the world through your eyes ( I     am told )

( Once a man, twice a child )

Those eyes would be (at least for me) the windows on a very special soul

(Once a woman twice a child)

 

Daylight(DAYLIGHT)……Bring in the sunshine

Make us smile (MAKE US SMILE)…..and stay for a little while

We’re so glad you came by today

We don’t get much company these days

We’re old and we lose our way….. Yes we lose our way

 

Outro

So Long…. I’ll see you again

Thank you for the time we’ve  spend together…. X 2

Daylight (DAYLIGHT)bring in the sunshine.

Make us smile (MAKE US SMILE)  and stay for a little while…. Stay for a little while …. Stay

This Song was written by David Light and Bakhus Saba.

It’s all about seeing children connecting with people with Dementia.

It’s Down Right Powerful!

Bakhus Saba Does It Again!

This song was written by Karen Morand, Dale Butler, and Bakhus Saba. “You Are Here” is about younger onset dementia and its many forms with Alzheimer’s, as the most common.

The lyrics to “You Are Here”

God knows what’s happening here

I’m all alone in my fear

“Early onset” is what I’ve been told

 I’m too young to be old

 All the memories I’ve known

Are fading into the unknown

The life I lived with the people I love

Are ghosts that haunt me now

I need to know somehow…

Chorus: 

You are here

You are near

Hold my hand  

One thing remains through the years – you are here.

I look in the mirror and what do I see?

The eyes of a stranger stare back at me

The look is familiar but something is wrong

Like an old forgotten song

Can you help me sing along?

A music video of a song that tells of the truths and struggles about the affects of Alzheimer’s disease.

Lyrics for “STILL A CHILD

If you knew what I was going through
You’d approve of what I had to do.
Putting you away for the rest of your days,
Play on my heart and tears me apart

I walk away with you on my mind,
It’s killing me to leave you behind.
You’re begging me to take you home,
But I feel so guilty because I leave alone

Cause I’m still a child when I look in your eyes
And it makes me cry and it makes me cry
Now every hello feels like I’m saying goodbye
Goodbye good bye goodbye

If I could have you back for one more day
Would you reassure me what I’m doing is okay
Would you comfort me and ease my mind,
Cause only you can help me find my way

Song written by John and Michele Law and Bakhus Saba © 2011 SOCAN
