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.

Trial by Fire

4+ hour flight after an inflight breakfast of French Toast, ham, fresh fruit, OJ and coffee. Picked up my Toyota rental without problem. Set up my iPhone with my GPS and headed to my Best Western motel.

That is when I remembered how crazy it is to drive in California! Freeway blending into freeway splitting into highways going every which way. Sometimes ten lanes across, everyone going at least 65 mph, switching lanes on a monents notice (or less!)

My GPS did a fairly good job of keeping up with her directions but sometimes the moves were so quick that she faltered. Only had to do one U-turn, one go to the next exit and come back, and one turn into a parking area to regroup.

But here I am in sunny Orange, California in my motel room, stripped down and about to take a nap. Was up at 5:30 to leave for the airport at 6:30. Do not remember when the last time I realized that it gets light out so early!

I'll keep you up to date on the documentary screening and my Southern California Adventures using my iPad Mini and my Logitec Mini Keyboard.
