Listen live on Tuesday, February 10th, at 1pm PST on firstname.lastname@example.org. Hear me in conversation with the fabulous Kim Sage on her radio show Loved. We'll be talking about Alzheimer's, the current film "Still Alice," and caregiving from the perspective of therapy and psychology.
Come join me and other sponsors at the Senior Health and Wellness Fair at The Regency in Laguna Woods on Thursday, September 18, 2014 from 10:30am - 4pm. It's free to attend, and will feature Orange County local professionals, such as myself, from all facets of health and wellness. I can't wait to see you...be sure to stop by my table for mental health tips and to say hello!
I just listened to this segment on Ira Glass' fantastic program, This American Life. It offers an alternative to frustrating patterns of communication with our loved ones with Alzheimer's...patterns that often result in power struggles and, frankly, just don't work for anyone involved. Scratch the old way, and consider using humor, creativity, and an "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" attitude for greater connection.
