Dementia Chats™ was created with the intention to educate people living with dementia; their care partners both family and friends as well as professionals and advocates.  Our Experts are those diagnosed with dementia. We have been doing this series since July of 2012, but given we changed platforms in 2016, only those videos from 2016 were preserved.

DC_111114_dena_robert_harry_michael_2Click Above  Hear What Our Experts Have To Say!

Another hot topic as we discussed reports of Robin Williams suicide now being tied to Lewy Body dementia.  Listen to what our experts living with the diagnosis of dementia think about having the right to take ones own life with a terminal illness like Lewy Body or Alzheimer’s disease.    I believe this conversation will get you thinking and having more conversations with others.

Here is also a link to Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio when we did a special two hour program on The Taboo Conversation, Life or Death with Dementia.

111114 DC taboo conversation life or death w dementiaClick Above to Listen to the Show

This program we devoted two full hours to a conversation with a variety of people and thoughts of living and dying with dementia.  Should one have the ability to decide when they want to end their life?  If so, when and under what circumstances?  Hear from those living with the disease, care partners, a Doctor, a Hospice Worker, an Attorney and more.  My guess is you are going to be pretty surprised by what you hear during this conversation.  I know I was.

Please note, Alzheimer’s Speaks understands not everyone will appreciate let alone agree with all comments on this show.  So we told out audience to feel free to call in and join the conversation.

Our only rule is, that all comments be respectful.  That goes for commenting on this blog as well.

Our goal is to get the topic off the taboo list.  It is our belief we need to learn more about how everyone deals with this diagnosis. What are their needs?  What are their concerns? How can we help live better with dementia?

What questions do you have?  What thoughts of yours do you want heard?  Please use the comment box to express your own thoughts on the topic.
