A Story of Love and Respect

Well you all know by now how much I love my job because I’m always excited about my guests; but today is extra special.  We are so lucky to have with us Max Wallack who is a young man who is walking his talk with dementia.  Max’s journey with his grandmother who had Alzheimer’s has set this man on a path where he is making unbelievable strides.  He is a researcher, started an organization called Puzzle to Remember and now has co-authored a book called “Why did Grandma Put Her Underwear In The Refrigerator?”

Max’s co-author, Carolyn Given will join our discussion,along with Emma Richman.  I hope you can join us as well.

Jiminy Wicket – Adaptive Croquet

Building Smiles Around The World

I’m looking forward to participating with our Memory Cafe in playing Jiminy Wicket Croquet on the longest day of the year to represent there is fun and engagement with life with dementia.  Arthur’s Memory Cafe and Arthur’s Residential Care will join together for a fun day of playing croquet.  Do to the weather we have decided to play indoors.  I love the Jiminy Wicket concept as it is so adaptable for locations and personal needs.  People who are fully mobile to those in walkers and wheel chairs and scooter can all  play!  Plus it’s a wonderful game for all ages to play together.  If you are looking for a why to have a lot of fun and engage those with dementia, their families, friends, staff and volunteers you need to talk with James Creasey the developer of this game.
