Hello and welcome to our website! This is my co-founder, Layla, my trusty side kick! We hope you visit back often as our product line and tools grow.
Our vision for this blog is to serve as a sharing community for long term care professionals, activity leaders, nurses, and family members alike. So many of the long-term care nurses, activity staff, directors and more see things from one unique 8 hour perspective, when we know this is not truly reality. When a member of your family is diagnosed, the world can seem to stop. What comes next? How do I help preserve their memory and function as long as possible? What happens when I can't care for them in my home on my own? These are just some common questions from families that are learning to deal with the daily trials and tribulations of Alzheimers. Many online resources require you to have an advanced degree to figure out their content, an others have you hysterically crying because the diagnosis appears to be overtly bleak. On this blog I will discuss topics that come up in my work or life that are relevant to those with experience (personal or professional) with Alzheimer's/Dementia. Please feel free to add comments and email me for suggestions on later posts.
Thanks again for coming by, and please stop back soon!
