Detailed direction for creating a Memory Book. This is an easy and interactive way to preserve a person’s history while creating a treasured heirloom for family and friends. By Connie Lucas of the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Iowa Chapter.
Content that is particularly relevant to professional care providers, activity professionals, designers and architects of dementia friendly living communities, and anyone involved in the dementia friendly movement, like library workers, salon workers, etc.
As Bernice’s caregiver, friend, and power of attorney, I was responsible for decisions made for her care. I never really considered what would happen when the need for emergency medical care for Alzheimer’s arose. An emergency trip to the hospital can be traumatic for you as the caregiver as well as the person in your care. After several falls that resulted in trips to the hospital over the last three years, I finally had a system figured out that worked for me.
Activities of Daily Living are those things we all need to do on a regular basis to ensure our health and well-being. We take them for granted–until we cannot do them anymore. Unfortunately, dementia makes these tasks more and more difficult. There are aids to help.
Recreational activities play an important role when it comes to defining our own Quality of Life. Each of us chooses activities based on our interests and abilities. People who have dementia need access to recreational activities, too; this is as much a moral imperative as it is an issue of care and disease management.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
- Thanks, Appreciate that “extra effort”. Don’t seem to run into that much anymore… and that is a shame. I’m really looking forward to receiving the “toys” for my wife. I pray they will work as good as one of her caregivers told me they would. Ken
