5-30-1868 MEMORIAL DAY AND CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

flagWe used to meet at Sinnissippi Park for our picnic. A garbage can full of ice held “pop.” Cotton U.S.A. flags were stuck in the ground on all the boulevards and graves of veterans. My Dad was a World War Two B26 bomber pilot. I heard his stories and saw the photos of the horrors he witnessed. Many men and women over 75 have a personal war story as a soldier or family member of someone serving.
Let’s remember the story and tell it. The oldest memories are easiest to access if one has Alzheimer’s, even through the late mid-stage of the decline. Memories bring joy and sorrow… emotions that speak of a full, meaningful life.
Please call 779-537-5249 or comment on your struggle in a family with dementia.

1-2-3-Ways to Maintain Your Brain Power

Trying to maintain brain power as we age means we need to exercise safely and we need to try to read as long as we can. Laughing releases healthy chemicals into our systems and hiking in unfamiliar territory forces us to practice balance and forethought.

At Satori Pathway we educate families on the dementia journey. We also help assess the needs of the Alzheimer or dementia client. We will answer questions and try to create a care plan covered by Medicare.

Please call me …do you know what drink helps the brain because it helps the heart?

SANTA’S 23 ELVES NEVER GET OLD

All the kids I know,including myself,are happy those elves are ageless and can remember what our wishes are for Christmas.I remember hanging almost upside on the stairway with my sisters Christmas Eve night trying to “catch” Santa or the elves bringing our gifts.

If a family member has Alzheimer’s’ remembering the old days is not as difficult as remembering how to bake Christmas cookies from a recipe.Losing the ability to process is baffling and frustrating for the person losing memory and for the family.Please call 779-537-5249-or commen.Satori Pathway is here for families with these issueelvess.

Blue Moon 1959-1963

My sister Brenda is 5yrs. older than me…we shared the dormer in our bungalow where you could hear her collections of Motown,the Beatles and classic rock.Music is embedded deep in our memory.One of the lasting abilities elderly patients have is to remember music and lyrics.They might not know their grandchild by name but they can sing a song and dance to a song from their 20′s and 30′s.Satori Pathway helps family and caregivers find a way to make a challenging day with a dementia patient fun and spontaneous at some point.

Please call me at Satori with any questions about dementia or Alzheimer’s.779-537-5249
