FOR GREGORY. He was not a VICTIM of ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE, he was a HERO!
PLEASE NOTE: Even though this blog is now dormant there are many useful, insightful posts. Scroll back from the end or forward from the beginning. Also, check out my writer's blog. Periodically I will add posts here if they provide additional information about living well with Dementia / Alzheimer's Disease.

Blanch Sees God
Wanda is a Lieberman Life Activities Director and Blanch is a resident on one of the Lieberman assisted living floors.
Gregory's paintings, from a show in the Lieberman lobby, will be up until March 1. Blanch approached Wanda about buying one of Gregory's paintings for her room and wondered how much it would cost.
The important part of buying the painting, Blanch told Wanda, is that you can clearly see God's face in that painting. Wanda studied the piece but could not see the face until Blanch pointed out the details. Now Wanda can see the face.
I am not sure if I want to see the face myself but was happy to offer Blanch a special "Resident Only Price" of $10.00 for the painting. She was overjoyed and will drop the money off at the front desk and get her painting today.
So much of life still goes on at Lieberman.
