I can’t put into words how humbled and honored I am to be named one of fourteen people, picked by Oprah and her team as a 2018, “Health Hero.” Being mentioned twice in one year in the “O” magazine is just down right amazing.

Hi Everyone,

Lori La Bey Host of
Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio

I don’t often write to ask for your help, but this is one of those times I must reach out to you.  One of the biggest advocates for dementia, Norrms McNamara has been BANNED FROM FACEBOOK.

 One man can make a difference. 

Norrms has proven that and you can too!

Norrms McNamara,  knows of which he speaks. 

He lives with the disease and has honored us all by allowing us an inside peak as to what life is like with dementia.  Norrms has helped so many people world wide with his beautiful poetry and prose, but even more so for his unwavering commitment to shift our dementia care culture world wide.

Norrms was the voice who shared with me the concept of the Memory Cafe which I brought over to the US and now they are popping up all over, as the need is so great for this new type of social support for people living with memory loss.

Norrms started Dementia Awareness Day last year and it has grow and gotten the support of individuals and communities world wide.  Here is the link for more information on Dementia Awareness Day.

This is a man who is working on dementia friendly communities and business models over in the UK.  His insights are many, his passion is endless and his purpose is powerful.

Please watch the video and then sign the petition for Norrms voice to be heard on facebook.  Facebook allows Norrms to make connections to people, organizations and communities in need; which would not be possible through other means.  Is that not one of the largest benefits to Facebook?  United people around the world…I sure  think so!  Norrms isn’t selling anything but hope and new ways to live with a disease that torments so many.  Please let his gift to the world continue.

One man can make a difference. 

Norrms has proven that and you can too!

Here is the Link to the Petition

Thank You for Your Help!

Lori La Bey

Rick Phelp’s Video Log, Day 3

Rick has been diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease  EOAD.  I will posting these videos as I get them from Rick.  If you are interested in truly understanding what it is like to have Alzheimer’s or are caring for someone with the disease, I believe these video logs will change your life in a positive fashion. 

In addition to this video sequence, Rick has also started a group called “Memory People” on facebook.

The group is for both people with Memory Loss and their Caregivers.  Here is some more information on how to find “Memory People” on facebook.

1)      Log into facebook

2)      If you have not signed up for facebook yet, you must do this first.  Once you have done this you will have a home page and can follow the directions below.  To sign up for facebook, just google facebook.com and follow the directions.  It is very simple to do.  I did it! 

3)      Once you are logged in on your home page you will see a search box just left of the facebook logo and next to the little, people, comment, and world icons.  You can’t miss it.  

4)      Type in “Memory People” and a list of groups will appear

5)      Look for the drop down and click on the one that says “Memory People”  and it will bring you to their page.

6)      From there you can decide to join by clicking on the button that says “Join” I believe it is in the upper right corner of the page.
