Joan, Blair’s wife, states, “I was looking into having Blair put into a home.” She discovered that private care would take 80% of their pension.

Barbara Magro is the author of Recipes to Remember: My Epicurean Journey to Preserve my Mother's Italian Cooking from Memory Loss. Most people don’t realize that cooking is one of the first activities eliminated with dementia patients and the cause of much disturbance in a household when the patient has been the primary chef for many years. Family recipes are the heart of tradition, and if they are lost, family heritage is lost too.
According to Medical News Today website, Alzheimer's disease is a neurological disorder in which the death of brain cells causes memory loss and cognitive decline. A neurodegenerative type of dementia, the disease starts mild and gets progressively worse
Seeing our loved ones forget their names, their families, and the world around them can be heartbreaking. But in the midst of such trauma for both our loved ones affected by Alzheimer’s and those who provide care, we have to realize and understand one thing: as strong of a hold this disease has, there are some Alzheimer's cannot do.
It is always a pleasure and an honor to showcase today's guest on this episode of the Write Stuff. November is National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month and National Caregiver Month and she always brings encouragement, education, and knowledgeable information. Join me for an insightful and inspiring discussion with our returning guest co-host and contributor, RJ Thesman, author of the Reverend G series.

Join Elaine Read-Cole, Dana Zimmerman, and Julie Fleming as we discuss what can help the Caregiver in mentally, physically, and spiritually. Life experience and expertise coaching can reassure you “you are not alone” in this daunting journey! W e’ll also discuss some of the other degenerative brain disorders that may appear like Alzheimer’s but are either cross over diseases or are a completely different diagnosis. Such diseases may not even be diagnosed correctly during a patient’s lifetime.
We invite you to call in and share your tips, your stories, and your empathy for everyone involved.
We also invite you to listen to the first two parts of this program. You never know when something someone says will hit a cord and become your lifeline thought for that day.
So please join us as we try to shed some light on this ever increasing disease. As we talk about it more and more perhaps a hidden solution can be revealed.
Modern life is reeking havoc with the human body. From working 3rd shift to combat duty, from being a long haul trucker to being overweight, from being overworked to medication interactions, our endocrine system and nervous systems are being thrown out of whack resulting in many a sleepless night.
When should school start for teenagers? How can one quite a racing mind? How long is too long to fall asleep? Why do all species sleep?
But far from being just annoying, not getting proper sleep is downright dangerous. It depresses the immune system and makes us more susceptible to cancer and alzheimer's.
The good news is there are solutions to this very common problem and Judy Sellins and Dave Turco will share them with you.

Elder Financial Abuse.
It is a dirty, disgusting term that makes most normal folks cringe at the thought of such a thing. The sad fact is, it is out there...in your community...maybe in your own family...in so many forms and in so many paces, many consider it an epidemic. Go figure that.
This week, I am privileged to have Barbara-Anne Foley, Executive Director of the Harwich Council on Aging, as my special guest to help address this subject. In addition to her many duties in this important role, she has been able to leverage her experience with thousands of seniors and the stories they have told about financial abuse, by working with in partnership with the Harwich Police Department, trying to warn seniors about these frauds and scams.
For those of you who do not know her, Barbara-Anne began her career in mental health and career counseling in Braintree, MA. She also worked in an adult day care center and a nursing center on Cape Cod before landing her dream job with the Harwich Council on Aging in 1999. She can be reached there at (508) 430-7550.
She has developed a primary focus on Alzheimer's disease and hoarding, both population of which are growing in leaps and bounds.
In 2006, when her own father lost his 10 year battle to Alzheimer's disease, she and her family started the "Remembery Walk ---Dave Birtwell Memorial", raising over $150,000 to date for Alzheimer's patients and their families.
This show will hopefully help you understand:
How to recognize elder financial abuse
The different types of financial abuse
How to uncover it in your own family
What to do about it once you do discover it
This is an important show. Please tune in and tell as many people as you can to do so as well.
