Alzheimers

The Longest Day


One of my passions has always been raising money for Alzheimer’s research. Not many people know this, but my mother Loretta, had Alzheimer’s for 10 long years. I watched my mom go through the various stages of Alzheimer’s while the disease slowly robbed my mother of her memories of her home and family and left just a mere shell of a woman until her eventual death last year.

Every year the Alzheimer’s Association holds the Longest Day during the summer solstice. This year the Longest Day will be held on Jun 21, 2015.

Change

Each December I begin praying that God will give me insight for the New Year. December 29th I woke and the first word that popped in my head was "Change."  I pondered this word all day and began writing down all the things that came to mind when I said the word "change." God was most definitely preparing me for 2015.   Change is nothing new to me personally. I've learned to embrace and accept change to be BETTER and not bitter. However, this year as I mediated on 2015 I realized there were many things to come that I dreaded.

January: Alzheimer's Awareness Month

 
 
 
 
With all the New Years hype over and done we have started Alzheimer's Awareness Month! My Papa's mother, my "Cookie Grandma" had dementia. Alzheimer's is the most common type of dementia and 60 to 80 percent of people diagnosed have this form of dementia. Dementia is a disease associated with a range of symptoms such as memory loss, communication and language, ability to focus and pay attention, reasoning and judgment, and visual perception. This disease plagues there everyday lives making it impossible to accomplish daily tasks or even go outside.
