Our Primary Conversations Covered:

Family dynamics and dementia

The importance of social interaction and connection

What happens when the disease changes

We had fun listening to the “Little Drummer Boy” by Vanessa Campagna at the end of the webinar from the Memories – The Songs and Spirit of Christmas by Alzheimer’s Music Connect.

One year after his diagnosis, I found my purpose in life again….that of dementia awareness and transparently journalizing and sharing my experience, strength and hope seeking to help both persons with dementia and their care partners.

Dementia Chats Recording from Tuesday Dec 9th, 2014

Tuesday Dec 9th, 2014

Today we had a great discussion on the term “sundowning” and also had talked about some great tips for the holidays.  We also discussed the movie “Still Alice,” some gifts wrapped in this disease.  I am not sure why, but for some reason Harry Urban did not show up on the recording, although we all heard and saw him while it was live. I apologize for this technology error.  Adobe Connect is working on getting this fixed.
