Alzheimer’s Speaks was sadden with the loss of one of it’s experts living with dementia.  On April 1st, 2015, Dena Dotson planned to leave this world in hopes of a better life.  Although everyone may not agree with her decision, it is important for us to honor her work and advocacy to improve the lives of others living with dementia. We will not judge her decision but accept the fact that none of us can really know what decision we would make if to walk in her shoes.

Today Dena no longer suffers from the symptoms of dementia which made her life unbearable. Today we  celebrate the gifts she gave us while here and grieve her loss together as a community.

Please note this is a replay so you won’t be able to call in today.

Feeling So Blessed

alz Lori mom photo logoToday I am feeling so blessed and humbled by a beautiful article written by Mara Botonis the author of “When Caring Takes Courage.”  Not only does it honor my work, but more importantly my mother’s thirty year journey with dementia.

Needless to say, without my mother being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s I would probably still be selling residential real estate. I wouldn’t be known as an advocate on steroids for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. I wouldn’t have met such terrific new friends and colleagues all over the world.  I surely wouldn’t be a speaker or a writer. In fact, I actually can’t  imagine missing out on all of the life lessons I was taught through moms illness.  Yes, life would be much different, and much less then it is today for me.

“Lori La Bey, the “Oprah” of Alzheimer’s”

Chronic illness and loss can and will be difficult there is no doubt about that, but it can also give us great life lessons, increase our drive and passion to live life fully, simply and respectfully. How are you going to chose to look at an live life?
