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.

Fashion Show: Dress to Impress

At Lieberman today a "Fashion Show: Dress to Impress" took place in the community room. Approximately two dozen residents, both men and women, dressed themselves up beautifully in anticipation of walking the red carpet runway. Staff were also decked out in their finest evening wear and high heels. Some fifty other residents became the appreciative audience.

Below are photos of Gregory all dressed up. Manny got him dressed up in a pair of kaki's, with real shoes, and a soft black polo top. I dropped a tear or two because it has been a long time since I have seen Gregory dressed like the "olden days" as compared to his usual sweat pants and long sleeved T.

Manny is always so loving and caring and went to a lot of trouble to have Gregory shining for his runway debut including buying him the new black shirt. I added the handmade rainbow silk scarf which was a gift from Susan Tillett and the top hat which was purchased from the Lyric Opera of Chicago "Garage Sale" last year.

It was decided that Gregory looked like something out of "Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory," "Dr. Seuss," or "Alice in Wonderland's Mad-hatter Tea Party!"
