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.

Dear Blog Readers

Over the life of this blog since June 2010, the number of readers has been growing exponentially. I just wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU and to say that I hope by joining our journey (often or periodically) and that hearing about Gregory and my experiences are able to support you on your journey. I hope that they help you to realize that YOU ARE NOT ALONE, whatever your sorrows and joys may be.

In many ways the fact that Gregory and I are a same sex couple seems to disappear as you realize that ours is a story of two people in love, family friends or whomever, who care for each other and have been journeying through Dementia/ Alzheimer's on what often seems like a run-away roller-coaster ride, "The Three R's."

Having said that, however, I also need to say that in my research on the internet I find that there is very little, if nothing, out there dealing with GLBTQ couples who are dealing with the issue of living with Dementia/ Alzheimer's or loving someone who is living with it. That makes me sad and seems to make my work at blogging all the more important.

Finally, I would ask you to share the blog's address with anyone and everyone who you think might benefit from Gregory and my journey and to comment now and then if only to say, "Hi. We are out here!"

Thanks and Namaste,
Michael and Gregory
