Merry Christmas from the Alzheimer's Reading Room

During all these years in the Alzheimer's Reading Room, while speaking around the country, and in all my many interactions with those in the Alzheimer's and Dementia Communities I learned many things. But nothing more than this one simple Truth

They Love Us More

Merry Christmas

1. The Ordinary Acts We Perform Each Day Lead to Joy and Happiness

Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.
~ Saint Augustine

2. Alzheimer's Care, Life, Burden, Happiness, Joy

We are often constrained in our caregiving effort by our own inability to understand that Alzheimer's patients are capable of more than we can imagine.

3. Empathy Leads to Compassion Then Joy for the Alzheimer's Caregiver

The only way the caregiver can come to understanding and then empathy is by looking at the world out of the eyes of the person who is living with Alzheimer's or the other types of dementia.

4. How to Get Answers To Your Questions About Alzheimer's and Dementia

At its core the Alzheimer's Reading Room is about helping everyone to better understand, cope, and communicate with a person living with dementia.
