FOR GREGORY

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

PLEASE NOTE:


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


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!

THIS WAS THE FINAL POST TO THIS SITE BEFORE IT WENT DORMANT.


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.

Lieberman Spring Carnival

I am sure I will be writing about this for several days to come but meanwhile this is my thank you to the helpers who joined me today at the Carnival:

DL, SL, SL, JY, JB, IB, CA, LG, WG, EM, NC, HS, RS, SL, JL, PA, MP, SSP, RM, NL, RL, RL, KN, VN,

A vision is no good without people to help you support that vision. Thanks so much for your help today at Lieberman and for being the first to help usher in my 70th year.

Together we made so many people happy including Lieberman residents and their families, Lieberman staff, and very importantly each other. Events like this, which for the most part take only a little energy, pay back with such great rewards of joy. 

So many laughs, so many smiles, so many thank yous, so many boxes of popcorn and push-ups, so many men and woman hugging their prize Beanie Babies, were our thanks. I do consider the ability to spread the joy a gift from Gregory and a gift of Alzheimer’s. 

As I said, Gregory may not be able to remember your name or exactly how you connect to his life, but he does know and feel your love for him and knows that you are special to him as well!

I love you all and consider myself blessed to have you in my life and for your continuing loyalty to Gregory and me!

Michael
