Joy, Love, Music, Videos



December 2016: This Christmas will be difficult for me – the first one without Mom since spending special times together from 2005 to 2015, and so many more growing up and in young adulthood. I’m grateful to have this and other video recordings that clearly show that love, music, connection and compassion enable people who live with dementia to engage life well into the later stages of the disease. If you celebrate at this time of year, I invite you to see the hearts and souls beyond the disease and to support people who live with dementia by including them without reservation in the circle of your life.

Flashback December 2014: Christmas is around the corner and Mom, Eric and I are singing Yuletide tunes as part of our weekly healing music session. Here’s “Gloria” as a way to kick off the festive season:

  1. In some way i feel like this is my first Christmas without Deb. I know she is still with me but in a different way and i am thank ful for that.

    In some way i guess this is your first Christmas without your mom but, you have her with you in memories, videos, and most of all in spirit and heart. That is were she is taking care of you.

    Love to you from your cyber friend



  2. My thoughts will be with on the day. This is my second Xmas without Mum. It is a real day of memories for me.

    I think that, for many years now, I concentrated on making it a special day for Mum and John. I will still be doing that for John this year.

    Our Mum’s are still with us


  3. Loving thoughts and hugs to you, Amazing Susan. You made your Mom’s life so wonderful during the last decade; hopefully that realization brings you some comfort. These memories are so precious…
