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: 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.

TBD (Thanks, Browse, and Defect) To Be Determined
I continue to get many hits on the old site http://mhorvichcares.blogspot.com and I am grateful for that. Look around, browse back through the close to 1,500 plus posts which have received over 74,000 hits. and experience the journey of Gregory and my Dementia/ Alzheimer's experiences, observations, lessons learned, etc.
... but I have taken a big risk by beginning to post only to my writer's blog (http://mhorvich.blogspot.com) since the posts are now about me, about grieving Gregory's death, about living beyond Dementia/ Alzheimer's. The risk is that I will loose some of my readership and that loss makes me sad.
So please, please, please enjoy and learn and grow (if I may be so bold) from my posts on the Dementia/ Alzheimer's blog but also come on over to my writer's blog for future adventures with Dementia, Grieving, and learning more about me and my musings, poetry, observations, essays, humor, fiction, etc.
The "michael a. horvich writes" blog is not new and currently has over 608 posts with 19,966 hits so there is a lot to read there. P.S. Feel free to comment on what you read!
Looking forward to seeing you there,
NEW SITE: http://mhorvich.blogspot.com
