Many of us are uneducated in the world of aging....We fail to tap into our sensitivity as we see our aging parents and grandparents...Sometimes we even assume that their cry for help through forgetfulness, is just a means for attention.
How is it possible at the age of 78 to remember what was taught during our toddler stages, but forgetting we graduated with honors from a prestigeious college? How can we remember how to cook during golden years, but forget we gave birth to 4 beautiful children?
How does it feel when you own mother no longer recognizes you? Or your dad never remembers you name?
Let us open the door to Dementia and allow the details to be shared with us....
Patients with dementia develop dysphagia ( swallowing problems) sometime during the clinical course of their disease, and it is estimated that 45% of institutionalized patients with dementia have dysphagia. Complications from swallowing problems resulting from neurological diseases and dementia can include: dehydration, malnutrition, and aspiration pneumonia, often resulting in repeat hospitalizations, and sometimes resulting in death.
Join me and guests: Roya Sayadi, PhD ,CCC-SLP, and Joel Herskowitz, M.D.,authors: Swallow Safety: How Swallowing Problems Threaten the Elderly and Others: A Caregivers Guide to Recognition, Prevention, and Treatment. Their book was written in an attempt to provide people with a basic understanding of swallowing and practical suggestions that might “prevent problems and promote greater safety.
Laura Michael, is a nutritional consultant and owner, Dysphagia Supplies Direct. When Laura’s own father was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia she committed to help her mother keep her father living well at home, and continues that work with others.

Life or Death with Dementia - The Taboo Conversation
Today we will devote the full two hour show to a conversation with a variety of people and thoughts of living and dying with dementia. Should one have the ability to decide when they want to end their life? If so, when and under what circumstances? Hear from those living with the disease, care partners, a Doctor, a Hospice Worker, an Attorney and more. My guess is you are going to be pretty surprised by what you hear during this conversation. I know I was.
Please note, Alzheimers Speaks understands not everyoe will appreciate let alone agree with all comments on this show. So feel free to call in and join the conversation.
Our only rule is, that all comments be respectful.
Our goal is to get the topic off the taboo list. It is our beleif we need to learn more about how everyone deals with this diagnosis. What are their needs? What are their concerns? How can we help live better with dementia?
What questions do you have? What thoughts of yours do you want heard? Call in and join the conversation or use the chat box to let us know your thoughts.

Celiac Awareness Day is the perfect time to learn more about celiac disease and to share information so that more people are diagnosed. Potential symptoms of celiac are not well-known, physicians often do not order proper testing and at least 90% of people are still not diagnosed.

In today's show, Jules will discuss potential symptoms of celiac disease, problems in testing for CD, the diagnosis of gluten sensitivity, and the benefits of the gluten-free diet.
Share with family, friends and neighbors - spread the word about celiac disease and help others get properly diagnosed!
