After publishing Going Gentle Into That Good Night, I have given a lot of thought about how to best provide on-going and more detailed practical help and information about loving caregiving for our loved ones with dementias and Alzheimer’s Disease.
I intentionally wrote the book to be read quickly and to give immediate, big-picture information to caregivers.
However, there are a lot of details and little things that will come up along the way. There is a lot of information that can take hours of research to find and put together to evaluate a new or sudden situation or a change in behavior, actions, etc. There are many practical matters and considerations that take time and energy that you won’t necessarily have that need to be addressed.
Based on some of the messages I’ve gotten so far, there’s a real need for a blog like this. And it gives me a chance to continue in my parents’ footsteps of paying forward. In every thing that I have done since Mama died, that’s been the intent behind it. To step into the shoes of my parents’ legacy and leave the world a better place than I found it. Just like they did.
So, my intention with this blog is to give you as much information in one place as I can to help you do what’s most important: loving and practical caregiving.
So follow the blog and we’ll walk through the journeys together. Please comment or if there’s something you’d like to discuss privately, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And, for those who are inclined, I’ve included a Donate button on this blog. It’s optional, but anything given will be used to continue to educate and help in every way that I am able anybody and everybody who is caregiving (not just dementias and Alzheimer’s, although that will be a strong focus of this blog) for elderly loved ones.
Thanks and welcome aboard!
