Our parents care for us growing up. What happens when our parents are no longer able to care for themselves? Tonight Special Guest & Author SJ Reidhead a.k.a The Pink Flamingo will share her journey & advice on Alzheimers and How to cope.
Check out her blog here:
Changing Perspectives about Alzheimers
Patients, Care & Caregiver
When you change your perspective, it expands your ability to give support to people, rather than acting from frustrated energy, or trying to change someone. The energy you bring to the day affects you, him or her, and those around everyone.
Tryn Rose will share how you can create the place in yourself where you can give respectful, generous energy and attention to another. It benefits everyone.

In hope of using former President Ronald Reagan as a pattern, we examined his voice prints from 1964 and analyzed them to verify that vocal frequencies 1964 could predict Reagan's struggle with Alzheimer's years later. Not only were we able to BioAcoustically verify that Reagan's Alzheimer's was predictable but we found several other current prominent leaders whose vocal prints are following in Reagan's footsteps toward - but as yet undetected - Alzheimer's related Dementia.
