Today’s show was a very interesting conversation.  We open with honor Richard Taylor, an icon in shifting dementia care around the world through his voice that spoke openly about his diagnosis, pushed society to be more compassionate and serve those with dementia better. (For a beautiful article on Richard, please read this article by Deborah Shouse.)

From there we discussed the latest article written about NAPA and the Alzheimer’s Association banning Michael Ellenbogen, after his speech at NAPA.

When the Patient Has Dementia

When: June 26, 2013 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Where: Online Webinar
Cost: Free!


Richard is back! In this month’s webinar, he will tell us about his experience of undergoing surgery and of being a hospital patient — as a person with dementia, and he will talk about how this experience can be improved and made safer. Please join us and be ready to provide your own input about your experiences as a patient with dementia in the medical system.

About Richard Taylor, PhD

Ten years ago, a noted neurologist told Richard Taylor, “You have dementia, probably of the Alzheimer’s type.”

Six years ago, he discovered that thinking, speaking, and writing about what it was like for him to live with this condition had quite unexpectedly brought him a new sense of purpose to his life.

Today, he speaks and writes of his experiences living with Alzheimer’s from the inside out for two important reasons. First, in the hopes that his presentation will convince folks not living with dementia that folks who are living with dementia are and will always be whole and complete human beings. Still possessing all the needs and wants everyone who does not have dementia possesses. And second, he hopes that his witness will encourage others living with the disabilities associated with dementia to stand up and speak out. After all, if folks living with the symptoms do not speak out, how will anyone really know what it is like live with dementia?

He has literally traveled around the world, many times – standing up and speaking out; meeting with kindred spirits and supporting care partners: sharing his belief that people living with dementia are not fading away, and the diagnosis of probable Alzheimer’s does not signal the start of the long goodbye. He sees everyone as being neither half-empty, nor half-full. It is the wrong the question to ask, the wrong way to look at folks, especially those folks living with the symptoms of dementia.

He promotes what he terms ‘humanizing dementia care’. A transactional approach to caregiving that humanizes the giver and the receiver; both at the same time.

This is a great play with a very strong message.  Below is a bit more information on the “To Whom I May Concern” concept along with the group who performed this particular session.  Please not the first 5 minutes of the recording is a bit scratchy but improves greatly after that.  I personal think it is worth everyone’s time to watch.

This video is a recording of the March 27 A Meeting of the Minds, where the first online play of To Whom I May Concern premiered. The video includes a 4-minute introduction to set the context for the play, the recording of the play, and the Talk Back session between the audience and the cast.

To Whom I May Concern is an interactive theatre project, where the stories of people with dementia are respectfully gathered and become the basis for the script of a play. The play is performed by a group of people with dementia, typically the same people from whom the stories originated.

The plays, usually performed live, provide a forum for people with dementia to communicate their thoughts, ideas, feelings and frustrations to the audience in an informal setting, and the Talk Back session that follows allows two-way communication between the cast and the audience to talk about what they just experienced. To Whom I May Concern is the brainchild of Maureen Matthews, and the website is www.towhomimayconcern.org.

The play in this recording is the first online performance of To Whom I May Concern, and was done in Google Hangouts, with each cast member playing their part from their own computers. Cast members are from various locations in the USA. Stories were also gathered from this same group via meetings in Google Hangouts, email, and the telephone.

A Meeting of the Minds is a monthly webinar for people with dementia and others meeting the challenges of dementia. Facilitated by Laura Bowley and Richard Taylor, the website is www.meeting-minds.com.


Dementia Chats, which is a FREE webinar session might be another great resource for you to learn.  We do these twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, but all are recorded. Just click on the logo above and it will take you to the website which hosts more information on the webinars, along with the recorded sessions and how you can participate in the live programs allowing you to ask your questions directly. Here is our last session.  Just click on the photo below.
