Periodically I will add posts here if the sources provide additioanl informaiton on how to think about and deal with Dementia/ Alzheimer's Disease.


SCROLL DOWN FOR TEXT and BIBLIOGRAPHY from DAI WEBINAR 2/22-23/2017. You can also find this information on my website:

Even though this blog is now dormant (see info below) there are many useful, insightful posts. Scroll back from the end or forward from the beginning. My guess is that you could spend a lot of time here and maybe learn or experience a thing or two about living with and loving someone with Dementia/Alzheimer's or maybe come away with the feeling that "you are not alone" in YOUR work with the same!

Happy New Year 2016. With a new year comes new beginnings and sometimes endings. If I am personally progressing and if I am doing a good job in my grieving Gregory's death; if I have been able to learn my lessons in living and loving someone diagnosed with Dementia/ Alzheimer's; if I am to get on with my life ... I need to bring this Alzheimer's blog to an end since my writing has been dealing less with Dementia/ Alzheimer's and more with life after Dementia/ Alzheimer's.

Of course, I will always continue to work for and support fair treatment on behalf of people with Dementia/ Alzheimer's and may post here from time to time. Also, there are many wonderful posts here through which you may browse.

With this change, I will continue and reinvigorate my "michael a. horvich writes" blog which deals with grieving Gregory's death, life lessons, personal experiences, observations, memoirs, dreams, and humor in essay and poetry, as well as an attempt now and then at sharing a piece of fiction.

I have been developing a number of "sound bites" to use when people ask me about Gregory and how he is doing and how I am doing. One one hand I could tell long stories about the joys and sorrows of his current condition. And I probably have told them each often! 

So I have decided that less is more and that once the story has been told here on my BLOG I do not need to keep telling it, let alone reliving it. I think this is probably a good thing: Think More, Talk Less.


Gregory is fine, he's good. (Enough said?)

He is even and that is good.

He is happy, contented, and safe.

Gregory is no where near the man we used to know, but his spirit and soul are still very much in tact.

His CONDITION is much worse but his SITUATION is much better!

My heart is light knowing that Gregory is being well taken care of at Lieberman.

We have much for which to be grateful!

We are blessed. The Universe continues to line up behind us.

I will always carry Grief on one shoulder but have Joy and Comfort on the other.

  1. I just happened to stumble upon these soundbites and I just read about your journey in the sidebar. I think the bites are great and it sounds like you have been a great partner for Gregory. I wish you the best.
