  1. It was a member of own family that spurred me to write the Living Legacy LifeBook (which would have helped my Aunt Martha get through the realization of her fading memory) once she had taken all the drugs available (at that time) to halt her disease. A LifeBook would have helped.
    It also gives the family something positive to do that makes a real difference
    The Alzheimer’s family member can be a contribution even as memory fades.
    With my living Legacy LifeBook, family members together process, harvest and reorganize a lifetime of memories even as they fade.
    I believe that when a family member creates new narratives from their life and living, it would serve to keep their memories alive longer.

  2. It is truly wonderful to see the loving work going into life memories.
    There is another level of memory recall which when re-freshed, activates profound feelings which bring us in touch with our “moments of union with own infinite eternal power, love and intelligence”.
    When these moments are touched again, life itself is transformed beyond our mortal “coil”! We transcend dementia from “within”
    Touching those moments, brings bliss to us all!
