Hello there. My mother was just diagnosed with FTD. In my search for information I see many caregivers who are looking for support, so I created a facebook group called "Finding Peace With Pick's Disease".
This is a wonderful website Cassandra. I will visit often. Keep up the good work.Gordon.
HiThis is a great website. I have started following you and added you to my own blog reader section. I'm a volunteer at a Low Country community not-for-profit memory resource facility. I am fully committed as a dementia day care volunteer. See Memory-Matters.org I'm volunteermike.comCheersMike
Hi, My Name is Nealie Rose, and I have a short, beautifully illustrated Children's book that addresses Dementia in the family and the fears children may have about the unpredictability of visiting the relative with dementia. It is called GRANDPA WHEN, and uses quirky names to soften the conversation. It is available at Barnes and Noble, and Amazon online. I would be happy to send you a copy if you would like. Nealie Rose
This is a very informative blog. I'd like to introduce a helpful resource called LifeSongs. They are a recordable scrapbook to tell a person's life story through photos and then record 12 of their favorite songs. You've heard how music can magically spark memories? Well, this is a great tool for reminiscing, starting conversations and educating csregivers. They are only $29.99 at www.LifeSongs.info. You can visit the website and learn why music can help, too.
