Come join me on a journey filled with joy and hope.
Sing the Song of the Moment
Sing the song of the moment in careless carols, in the transient light of the day;
Sing of the fleeting smiles that vanish and never look back;
Sing of the flowers that bloom and fade without regret.
Let your laughter flush in meaningless mirth like twinkles of light on the ripples;
Let your life lightly dance on the verge of Time like a dew on the tip of a leaf.
Strike in the chords of your harp the fitful murmurs of moments.
– Rabindranath Tagore
I would like for you to consider a fresh and inspirational approach to caring for the dementia patient. By understanding that the world of a dementia sufferer is lived in small increments of time, caregivers are able to create moments of joy and contentment within this debilitating disease. This blog is a guide that will explain how to connect your loved one to the world around them so that they can experience the fundamental pleasures of life, like music, humor, nature, beauty, spirit and joy.
Having been a caregiver to a dementia patient for the past ten years, I know that you and I have walked the same path and faced the same obstacles. My greatest wish is that my experiences will help you find joy along your journey so that you can embrace the miraculous possibilities of hope.
