For Those Who Care
This year Alzlive has a team walking in the Alzheimer Society of Toronto's "Walk for Memories" on January 31st. Any donations for a cause that's close to all of our hearts would be greatly appreciated.
Dolls? Horses? Connect Four? Believe it or not, these things can act as therapies for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you suffered from dementia other than Alzheimer’s disease? The Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA) explains what a typical day looks like.
"It is always a shock when someone dies," as Shirley Roberts writes in her great book, Doris Inc. "None of us is ever truly ready to lose our parents or our spouse."
Unless you share everything. Waiting rooms in doctor’s offices across North America are filled with family caregivers who ran a marathon to get their loved one to the appointment.
When the going gets rough and you need free, expert advice on the spot, two Alzheimer’s organizations have a helpline you can access.
If only this overnight program, ElderServe at Night, were available in every city. It's one of those models that leads the way.
