The iPod program that Music & Memory provides in nursing homes is wonderful for people with dementia. Family caregivers at home can do the same thing if they have an iPod. Another great tool to use music to trigger memories and "awaken" individuals is called LifeSongs. It's a recordable photo album where you make 12 pages of picture collages telling a person's life story. Then you record a favorite song for each of the 12 pages. The multi-sensory approach for reminiscing is highly successful. Visit http://www.LifeSongs.info to learn more and for purchasing details.

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chafe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. Google gets a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia every 7 minutes. That can overwhelm anyone looking for help. This site filters out, focuses on and offers only the best information. it has helped hundreds of thousands of people since it debuted in 2007. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
