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.

A reminder that when I moved away from the "Alzheimer's BLOG" and back to my "Writer's BLOG," I did so because with Gregory's death, Alzheimer's and supporting him was no longer the biggest part of my life.
If I was to grieve his death and revitalize my individual life in a healthy way, i.e. not holding on to the past, I needed to move on and to move away from the subject of Alzheimer's.
That does not mean that I no longer think about the Alzheimer's, talk about it, support the sharing of information about it, or advocate for those with the disease.
This is an invitation to you to visit my writer's blog which deals with the grieving process and how my life has changed and continued since Gregory's death.
It also will keep you informed on the documentary "ALZHEIMER'S: A Love Story" which at this point has been accepted to 52 film festivals across the U.S. and World (2 in London, 1 in UK, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Florence, Madrid, Mexico City, Durbin South Africa.) It has won 27 awards!
