Welcome to this home.
It’s a place to take a deep breath, find resources and hope, and have company on the journey with Alzheimer’s.
Please settle in this chair, put your feet up, wrap an afghan blanket around you like your grandmother made, have a virtual cup of tea, read awhile…and have hope.
I am nearby, getting another cup of tea, or available for chatting in between passages. When you go to your own home, take my book with you, and know that I always welcome another visit, any time.
Take care, and stay in touch,

This wee book is a labor of love, clearly! Tryn has shared such a practical way to connect with others. Thank you.
I know Tryn as a former colleague. She is a woman of great heart and caring. Her approach to people with a dementia diagnosis emphasizes engagement, respect, valuing the person’s experiences, and providing a warm, supportive environment. This benefits both the person with the condition and those providing support. The book provides tools to enhance lives, reduce stress, and suggests a more embracing way to view people with this illness.
Hey thanks for posting this!If anyone is down in the Lone Star State – come and join us on May 1 -it is going to be an exciting event! Allen Power, MD (Eden Alternative) will be giving the keynote address which will focus on the need for a massive shift in our cultural understandings of dementia and aging in general. He will discuss the “experiencial” approach to dementia which includes a discussion of the effects of the environment – both physical and social – on the well-being of persons with dementia.Learn more about Al Power: http://www.alpower.net
I was a teenager in Phx., AZ durnig the Pres. Benson years. I was an avid newspaper reader and followed the drama about Pres. Benson’s grandson who was a political cartoonist for the local newspaper. Before his grandpa was made prophet, the cartoonist poked gentle fun at the Church in a harmless way. As his grandpa became impaired and was not functioning, things became difficult for him. He ended up leaving the church over how the leadership around Benson kept up the charade that all was well, when it really wasn’t. It was a painful, public kind of thing.
A while ago, just before the death of my grandfather (he actually died of a stroke at one of my cousin’s hockey games that led to a coma), I was talking to him on the phone and halfway through the conversation he forgot who I was and thought I was some random girl (I’m a guy). Such a tragic condition but unfortunately it is difficult to control. To all those suffering or know a friend or family member who has fallen prey to this, may peace and love be with you and guide your soul through eternity.
My father pssaed away almost a year ago from Alzheimer’s, it’s a terrible terrible disease, when we first started suspecting something was wrong was when my father started having complications in doing everyday tasks, it was really heartbreaking to find out that he had Alzheimer’s, we suffered as much as he did because it’s really hard seeing as his illness progressed, to those familys taking care of an Alzheimer’s patient I can only say try to always show as much love as you can till the end.
