Alzheimer’s Speaks— Giving Voice, Enriching Lives

As with the progression of many diseases, voice can be lost.  Communication as we know it evaporates.  This is the very essence, of why Alzheimer’s Speaks was created.  To bring voice back to the disease in many formats and fashions: while encouraging, assisting, and engaging those in need. 


“Shifting Caregiving from Crisis Mode to Comfort Care™” 

     Lori La Bey’s mission is to “Shift society’s negative perception of aging and illness, by getting individuals and businesses to appreciate and embrace the gifts wrapped in every stage of life.”  She believes by removing the fear, embarrassment, and judgment that cripples our relationships; we can enhance our connections with the people we love and care for.  Join her in “Shifting Caregiving from Crisis to Comfort mode™!

     Lori is a Driver of Change.  She is the founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks and co-founder of Dementia Map global resource directory. Both help families, communities, organizations, and businesses maneuver the turmoil of aging and illness. Lori has dedicated her life to working with people in transition.  She guides businesses and organizations on how to improve service delivery and enhance relationships with caregivers and their families.

     Lori understands Caregiving from the inside out.  She lost her Father to Brain Cancer after a 4 ½ year battle.  Her Mother struggled with Memory Loss for 30 years and passed on in 2014 from Alzheimer’s disease.  Lori now shares tips and techniques she learned as a Caregiver.  Her goal is to help people embrace the person who once was, engage the person before them, and let go; allowing love to flow forward; as the ill and aging surrender to the shell of a body that in prisons them.

Lori is routinely featured on a variety of news outlets for her cutting-edge work with dementia and caregiving.  She is a Speaker, Trainer, Consultant, Spokesperson, Author, Advocate, and Activist for change.

Lori provides multiple platforms to support those diagnosed with dementia, their families, friends, and business professionals.

  45. Keep Me Moored to the Harbour by Dave Clinch
    Keep me moored to the harbour,
    Don’t let this vessel shift.
    Unless you are coming with me,
    Don’t let me float adrift.

    Night clouds are approaching,
    A shimmer turns to grey.
    I wait till darkness breaks
    At the dawning of the day.

    Time now seems to me like loss,
    A frisson, a fear, please stay.
    The touch and feel of memory
    In my dreams just slips away.

    Keep me moored to the harbour,
    Don’t let this vessel shift.
    Unless you are coming with me,
    Don’t let me float adrift.

    The touch and feel of memory
    In my dreams just slips away.

    The touch and feel of memory
    A D
    In my dreams just slips away

  46. Thanks, Images by Dashfield. Memory loss has exercised my mind for several years now. I often think (unscientifically) about how memory works. I sing lots of songs from memory at gigs and open mics.

    The loss of memory is brutal. A friend said just last week. ‘You’d almost take a physical disability instead’. At least you would be able to understand what is happening.

    By the way I will play/perform at fundraisers for memory loss. I live in Torrington, North Devon.

  51. Hi,

    I was wondering who I should contact to discuss a potential partnership. FindTheBest provides content to help users make unbiased comparisons to help users make quality decisions related to elder care.

    We have already worked with great publishers like the Huffington Post, TechCrunch, and GolfDigest and we are looking for a quality caregiver sites to work with.

    Please let me know the appropriate person to speak with and how I may arrange a phone call to discuss.


      1. Hi Lori

        I discovered that we do have the ability to filter our Assisted Living Facilites so that only Alzheimer/Dementia Care locations show up. You can check this out at this link (http://assisted-living.findthebest.com/) and on the left hand sidebar under Type of Care you will see it.

        Also check out our Natural Remedies for Alzheimer’s Disease link (http://natural-remedies.findthebest.com/d/d/Alzheimer's-disease) I think both these resources would be very valuable on your blog at least.

        Let me know what you think.
