In Honour of Alzheimer’s Awarness Month – January 2020
Mondays begin with a preparing for the week ahead- reviewing favourite moments from the past week, inspiring quotes from participants and rejoicing in the friendships we saw blossoming in the room. Planning meaningful programs for the week… finding soup recipes for National soup month knowing one of our participant’s goals is to cook a beautiful meal in appreciation of the countless meals she had cooked for him over the years. As the morning continues, we open our doors to the warm smiles, friendly faces and those eager to come into the room to start their day. Marilyn Livingstone, a caregiver of one of the participants comments, “wow, it’s so nice here, you all are so lovely I even want to stay. While seated for our morning coffee chat we welcome our guests to a lovely day and the start of a new year. Our guests share “It’s so nice to be here. We are all happy to be here and be together with these nice people, our friends.”
We are lucky to open our doors each morning and positively affect the lives of those living with dementia, memory loss and Alzheimer’s. We see so much more than a diagnosis, we see individuals living a life with moments of joy and hope and dignity.
