On Mondays, we eat eggs.
These Arthur Douglas egg cups always bring me so much joy but yet also make me a little bit melancholic. You see, I have wonderful memories of them from my childhood. My grandmother had some and if I was ever under the weather, out they came, soft boiled eggs and fingers of white bread with enough butter they could practically stand up. Out would come the craft things too and we'd spend the day creating something- marble paper, quilling, making cards, stamping, or just resting on her tiny sofa under a homemade crochet blanket. When I saw the cups in a vintage shop a few years ago there was no question they should be mine. You see, my grandmother has Alzheimer's. One day, the cups in her house just disappeared. Like her memories. (A cruelty no one should have to endure.) She will never know my children. But every time the cups come off my shelf, I tell my two about her, a fresh new story every time, just like the eggs. ♥️

Someone dropped out.. looks like I’m in a play again!
With 3 weeks to the show 😅😱😂 *frantically trying to learn lines*
In all seriousness, it’s an amazing and heart-wrenching play, and I’m so excited to be part of it. “Florian Zeller’s The Father is a tragi-comic mystery, a sobering and realistic family story, and an unsentimental, emotionally intense look at the world through the eyes of a man experiencing dementia, a dramatic illustration of the physical losses which occur along with the mental ones.” #thefather#dementia#florianzeller
Now the training has to start!
If you feel so inclined I'd be honoured if you could make a donation and/or share the link, go on justgiving and search for Fiona Shill 💚
My brother died of cancer 30y ago. He spent 13 days in hospice while they "compassionately" starved him to death.
I'm not going that way.
What about a person with a serious, not much pain, condition that is terminal in several yrs but now suffers increasing dementia? [not me]

💜 📸 this beautiful couple was the most special part of the day, and on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, Betsy and Jesse and I took off to the park right by their home and had some fun. They are a #DoggiesforDementia family, and their doggie Happ is in many of their images, but we needed some with just them. Jesse has early-onset #Alzheimer's Disease. #ENDALZ

New podcast episode alert! 🚨🚨 "How to have a conversation with your loved that has Alzheimer's"
Many of us never ask our loved ones with Alzheimer's how they feel. Sometimes we are too afraid to engage in a conversation. Tune into to hear my interview with a mother and daughter. The mother has Alzheimer's and the daughter is the primary caregiver.

Wow. That is a staggering bit of projection, even for a Trump! So totally on-point! You know your father is suffering from dementia, as his father did before him, and you’re feeling guilty that *you* are not finally saying enough is enough and getting him the care he needs!!
This is snowflakism gone mad. What's next? Gumshields, hard hats, knee pads? Sadly a few ex pros fall victim to dementia and virtue signallers start frothing about the dangers of football. It's just ridiculous...
Encourages them to keep it on the ground surely that’s what we want? The same people complaining, would also complain that “nothing was being done” about the dementia/brain injuries in later life, had this decision gone the other way. https://twitter.com/skysportsnews/status/1231936654509776896 …
Two years ago, I fed my dad chocolate pie on Valentine’s Day. Today I fed my mom her lunch and thought about my dad. Missing him so much lately. It seems like there are so many little signs from him that he’s always with me. Little jokes that people say that sound exactly like something he’d say. Some of my old guy bestie residents at the nursing home who tell me to be careful in the snow. Or who talk sports with me. He’s never far from my heart. ❤️#endalz #motherdaughter#dementia#alzheimersawareness#missmydad#loss#grief

Feeling forgotten and isolated are so common in Alzheimer’s, but this can be helped with just a phone call!! ☎️ All it takes is reaching out to your loved one and letting them know that you care 💜 @alzheimersactionplan
people against it clearly don’t understand/don’t care how any impact on the brain at an early age can cause CTE, Continued Concussions or early onset dementia later in life, it also promotes a more technically skilled game
Human being rant. Sometimes life is hard. I’m not talking about anything life shattering, nor do I have suicidal thoughts... I’m thinking about something existential, that sometimes, if you actually think about it, being a human being is hard. Like, really, really, reaaaallly hard. It goes all the way back to theological questions like, “if God is good, why does evil exist”, and is as relevant as ever, whether you are religious or not. Why does kindness not prevail? Why do we let refugees drown, and fence them in in camps? Why do our political leaders not care about climate change, future generations, or taxing giant companies and billionaires? And closer to home, how do we cope with bereavement, anxiety, loss and sickness? Or simply the awareness of our own ever encroaching mortality? The thing which sent my mind reeling today, was news on my mother’s condition. Today she had another neuro-psychological examination, and tested in the grey area between dementia and normalcy, and positive for depression too. I knew this in my heart before she went, and I’m glad she has a good doctor, who sees what we see. But a year ago she tested “normal”, two years ago “above average” intelligence. Parkinson’s disease is a beast. She used to be sharp as a knife. I’m scared about the future, and I think being a human is scary. I realize I have it better than most - I have three healthy sons, get to follow my dream working as an artist, and live in a country with free healthcare and education - but all the same, this human stuff is hard. How are we really to deal with the things we are dealt? Sometimes I feel like we are much too small to handle this vast universe, and all the stuff life perpetually dumps at our doorsteps. Not that all is bleak! Sometimes I think life is beautiful, and that I couldn’t (in good conscience) ask for anything more... but today ain’t one of those days. How do you guys cope? I’m definitely going to snuggle my boys. But apart from that, I feel a bit at a loss today. Which is probably why I stamped all these birds. It’s the best kind of work, when your brain is spinning too fast! Take care out there🖤🖤🖤 Rant over😘
How Does Air Pollution Make You Feel?
A study shows that air pollution from burning fossil fuels can reduce the child’s lung capacity by 14%.
This pollution has also been lonked to asthma, dementia, infertility, slow childhood developement, autism, obesity, miscarriage, depression, psychosis, and decreased life expectancy.
Do you worry about how fossil fuels affect your child’s health? How are you taking action?
We would love to hear from you!

Approximately 80% of people with Alzheimer’s disease also have some form of diabetes, insulin resistance, or disturbed glucose metabolism. The connection between Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes is so close, that researchers have now begun referring to Alzheimer’s as “type 3 diabetes”. This finding is significant because it suggests that the risk of developing Alzheimer’s dementia can be reduced through dietary and lifestyle modifications.
Vita Columbia Clinical Research Inc. is taking the initiative to educate society on the new findings correlating Alzheimer’s disease with diabetes, and the possibility for prevention through lifestyle modifications, such as dietary changes.
A simple method to reduce added sugar consumption, is by substituting table sugar and high fructose corn syrup with vitaSWEET in cooking, baking, and beverages. vitaSWEET tastes like sugar, but is 0 on the glycemic index, meaning that it has no effect on blood glucose levels.
vitaSWEET is formulated with two simple ingredients: monk fruit and erythritol. Monk fruit or luo han guo is native to southern China and northern Thailand, and has almost 300 times natural sweetness than that of sugar. It has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine as a cold and digestive aid, and was first mentioned in the records of 14th century Chinese monks. Erythritol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol derived from fruits and plants. Vita Columbia’s unique blend of both monk fruit and erythritol is as sweet as sugar and can be used as a 1-to-1 replacement in recipes.
This is a really bizarre example of "research-driven" policy. So professional footballers are 3.5x more likely to die of dementia (but live longer generally) than demographically matched non-professional footballers... (1/N) https://twitter.com/FA/status/1231907776210796545 …

❗ Around 10,000 to 20,000 patients in Austria suffer from incurable Lewy body dementia. An international team of researchers from Paracelsus Medical University and Salzburg University Hospital, led by Ludwig Aigner, Julia Marschallinger and Barbara Altendorfer, found a potential approach to treating this form of dementia 💙 Friedrich Lewy first described the Lewy bodies, named after him in 1912. 👉🏻 These protein deposits in the brain cause diseases such as Parkinson's, Parkinson's dementia and Lewy body dementia. The latter is the third most common form of dementia after Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. In the current issue of the journal “Neurotherapeutics”, the scientists describe that the active substance montelukast in mice with Lewy body dementia reduced protein deposits and massively improved the animals' memory. The effectiveness of Montelukast, a drug already approved for the treatment of asthma, is currently being tested on Alzheimer's patients and could now be extended to people with Lewy body dementia 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Proof of life. Sang and danced till everything hurt @six60 ✌🏽music is truly a spiritual experience and being around thousands of people having the same experience is a vibe! And it was a nice reprieve from being a caregiver, having a few hours where I got to be just me. It’s a rare thing. Thanks @missmoerangi for the ticket and @smiling_maama for, well for everything ❤️❤️❤️ I am truly blessed with the best #dementia#alzheimers#nightout

Today my sweet hubby stepped into the role of caregiver. While I was at work, he watched out for my Mama. He took her to the Starbucks that she likes to visit each and every morning. She got a new purse and pair of shoes from Target. They had lunch at Panera followed by frozen yogurt from Yogurtland. He had the insight to give her a job to put away dishes while he mowed the lawn. In the afternoon, after they dropped my daughter off at her guitar lesson, they walked across the street to a Farmer’s Market. Some explicit music blasted from a nearby car and as they shared a laugh my mama began to bust a move... and then... she was busting open her head! My husband immediately called me and was stricken with guilt that she had fallen on his “watch”.
My first thought was, “Are you kidding me??” I couldn’t believe he felt bad and was focusing on this little “misstep” after all the amazing things he had done for her. I proceeded to tell him this. He continued to beat himself up!!
Then it hit me.... I do this to myself all the time!! I focus on one thing I think I’m not doing right and can’t see all the things I am!!!
HEY.... my fellow caregivers.... stop focusing on one misstep and look at all the amazing things you’re providing during the day 😍🥰😘!!!
BTW... Mama is ok and was in a great mood this evening because she had such a special day 💜!
Have just commented on this blog but want to say that as carers we should do our very best to cut out any situation where someone feels guilty because of something out of their control. It might not be easy but it can be done. http://memoryfortwo.com #dementia #carershttps://twitter.com/WendyPMitchell/status/1231927458880008192 …
