    A Spiritual Look at Dementia: Can it contribute to more Harmonious Relationships

    in Self Help

    November 13, 2014 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE ~ Life Changing Talk Radio

    THEME: A Spiritual Look at Dementia: Can it contribute to more Harmonious Relationships?

    INTERVIEW GUESTS: Rev. Susan J. Henley

    Rev. Susan J. Henley is an ordained Minister, Speaker, Certified Spiritual Counselor and author of "Sara, Beyond the Veil: A Spiritual Look at Dementia.”  She is also a certified practitioner and member of the American Holistic Medical Association (AHMA).


    Dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases. Alzheimer’s disease is one form of dementia that gradually gets worse over time. It affects memory, thinking, and behavior. Memory impairment, as well as problems with language, decision-making ability, judgment, and personality, are necessary features for the diagnosis. According to the Alzheimer's Association, More than 5 million Americans are living with the disease....every 67 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer's and Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. There is no cure for Alzheimer’s or Dementia.  It gets worse and worse until the patient ultimately dies from the gradual shut down of the brain and all bodily functions. With this being the case, would you want for your loved ones suffering with dementia to advance in harmony with their condition, their relationships and their family? Can a spiritual look at dementia assist in this harmonious advance?

    NLP Techniques To Help People Who Suffer From Dementia

    in Psychology

    Dementia is a term that is used to describe a collection of symptoms including memory loss, problems with reasoning and communication skills, and a reduction in a persons abilities and skills in carrying out activities of daily living. There are a number of different types of dementia the most common being Alzheimers Disease, Vascular Dementia, Frontol Temporal Dementia and Dementia with Lewy bodies. A diagnosis of mixed dementia is when the presentation shows the person to have elements of more than one type of dementia. Dementia is a progressive condition. The symptoms become gradually worse, the rate of which varies from person to person and each person will experience dementia in a different way. The purpose of working with people who have dementia, is to improve the functions that the disability affects to the highest possible level. Once achieved, NLP is used to shift the focus and strengthen every other function and resource that the person is using to compensate for the areas that no longer work to their full capacity. Through using the techniques of NLP, we can improve the persons quality of life and provide them with more independence by removing any possible frustrations she or he is experiencing. Tune in to this segment of The NLP View Radio Show, as host, Donna Blinston talks to author and health coach, Olive Hickmott about how she uses NLP to help people who suffer from Dementia.

    Today’s show is sponsored by Austria’s Finest Naturally Authentic Pumpkin Seeds and Pumpkin Seed Oil from the Steiermark available at OrganicUniverse.com.

    Living with Dementia...Forgetting the Journey

    in Lifestyle

    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....
