Our sense organs are an extension of our brain. It is through these specialized organs that we get information about our surroundings and about ourselves. But Alzheimer's affects perception in a way that makes understanding the world difficult.

What a wonderful idea this is!!! An Alzheimer's Cafe. It' like an extension to or a smaller version of Hogewey Dementia Village. We all like to hang out with others who share our interests and who are "like us". Alzheimer's/Dementia Cafes have been around a while, especially in Europe, as the video indicates; but the more I think about this, the more I excited I get about it.

The words we use do, to a great extent, influence the way we think, and the way we think, in turn, affects our actions.

Communicating with Alzheimer's is difficult, but don't stop trying. Even more frustrating for the person with Alzheimer's than the difficulty he is experiencing making his thoughts known to you is the thought that you have given up trying, or don't want to communicate with him.
