Our second guests are Greg O'Brien, veteran journalist who has dementia and Dr. Molly Perdue. Greg has been featured in several news features and has written the book On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s. This book is about living with Alzheimer’s, not dying with it. It is a book about hope, faith, and humor—a prescription far more powerful than the conventional medication available today to fight this disease.

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
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?
Join Joyce and Aaron as we interview Karen Tyrell, author of "Cracking The Dementia Code, Creative Solutions to Cope With Changed Behaviors." If you have a loved one who is suffering with dementia, listen in to hear coping skills and how to ease their agitation.

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....
