Open Mic On Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio –

Celebrating The Holiday Season. 

Let your voice be heard.

Before another holiday season slips by us, we would love to hear from you.  What are your struggling with during this time of year?  What are you grateful for?  Are you holding to your normal family traditions or have you made some adjustments?

We all know the holidays can be a beautiful and stressful time of the year.  For some, it’s down right depressing.  Here on Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio we believe it’s ok to feel a variety of emotions and we want to be a safe place for people to share  and support one another.

Call in at (714) 364-4757 or use the chat box to talk with us.  Together, we can make a difference to improve our dementia care culture.

Need a great gift for someone with dementia?

Gratitude Follow up

Here is a comment from one of our readers who is a bit shy and prefers to stay anonymous but had insights on the post I did on the gift of gratitude.  If you haven’t read the article, here is the post.

I read your blog in gratitude….what a lovely story…and mind set.  I feel the same way…my mom always says…I don’t want presents…I want your presence!  And I think of that often…and I have realized that as my life is changing…many material things are gone, lost over the years…

I have learned to focus on the “in the moment” experience ….and most people think I am a bit strange for doing so.   But that doesn’t stop me…I still stop to look at things that interest me or catch my attention…bike racks are interesting …stop and listen to the noises, music or music noise and have even danced a bit in public..no harm done.  Learned to laugh at my mistakes, we all make them, accept my faults, offer praise and kind words, even when maybe in the past I would have argued.

I like how I feel, and sometimes I get a kindness returned and it is so sweet!

Thank you for putting the idea out into the blogosphere ….

I just loved getting all your comments.  If you are shy and don’t want to post them in the comment section where your identity is noted, don’t worry.  Just shot me a private email and we can let the world know your thoughts without exposing you.  You can contact me through the website.  Just click on the logo below and lets chat!
