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



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



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…


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

How We Can Stop The Dementia?

Plus New Caregiver Video on Alzheimer’s

Today we had the privelege to talk with George Vradenburg, President of the Vradenburg Foundation who has had an up close and personal look at Alzheimer’s disease.  He has taken his personal experience and his business skills to form US Against Alzheimer’s, an organization set out to change our Dementia Care Culture as we know it.  George talked about the biggest challenges we are facing are:

  • Removing the stigmas associated with dementia and building a collaborative movement for change
  • The lack of fiscal resources for  research
  • The sluggish approval for new drugs and the high cost of clinical trials

We learned how this disease is effecting society and what we can all do to make a difference.  Collaboration is king.  Listen in and learn how YOU CAN JOIN FORCES!

Join the conversation.  Learn how this disease is effecting society.  Learn how YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

 Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia

Knows No Borders video

Released March 27, 2013 to heighten awareness of the disease

Bakhus Saba, a leading Alzheimer’s Disease research and care advocate, writes song and produces video featuring caregivers from around the world


MINNEAPOLIS, March 27 2013 – Lori La Bey, chief executive officer of Alzheimer’s Speaks, a popular website for Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia care along with Bakhus Saba, a leading Alzheimer’s Disease compassionate care advocate today announce the release a new video called Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Knows No Borders. It is a video of caregivers from around their world sharing their journey and stories of their loved ones who have been affected by the disease.

Sharecare and Dr. Oz recently named Alzheimer’s Speaks as the #1 influencer online for Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia.

La Bey is featured in the video along with her mother Dorothy, now age 85.  Dorothy has lived with dementia the past 30 years, and was formally diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease 17 years ago.


“At some point in our lives nearly everyone will be touched by Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia,” Saba says. “Statistically speaking, a parent, spouse, friend or even ourselves will be diagnosed with some form of dementia. And people are beginning to get the disease at an earlier age.”

According to the Alzheimer’s Association five million people suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and by the year 2050 that number is expected to reach 15 million. By 2050 the cost to care for patients with Alzheimer’s Disease will exceed $1 trillion.

Saba says that he was inspired to write a song entitled, Still a Child, and created a video as part of it’s distribution. He found people on Facebook who were willing to share pictures of loved ones with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

“I wrote the song and created the video to draw awareness for Alzheimer’s and dementia for the purpose of finding a cure and raising funds for research and care support services,” Saba continued. “September is World Alzheimer’s Month where there will be walk-a-thons around the globe to raise money and awareness for people with Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia.

Us Against Alzheimer’s plans to utilize the video to promote awareness of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia to the general public, and Congress to help raise funds for research.

The video will be debut on March 27 2013.   La Bey will interview Saba on March 29th on Alzheimer’s Speaks’ Radio, along with George Vradenburg, Chairman of Us Against Alzheimer’s .  Join the conversation on Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio. Those who are interested in seeing the video can view it at http://www.usagainstalzheimers.org.  Visitors can also sign a petition to encourage Congress to allocate more annual research funding.
