I remember the day I learned my mother was diagnosed with dementia. I asked the doctor, “Are you telling me my mother will get dementia in the future?” He responded with, “No. I am telling you your mother HAS dementia.” Quite honestly, my first thought was, “You must have failed bedside care class!”  What I really needed was a caring, understanding individual who was ready to help me walk the road of dementia. I knew NOTHING about the disease except the horror stories that had crossed my path.  My journey of learning to be a good caregiver began that day.

From that educational experience,  Senior Life Journeys was born.  Our goal is to bring knowledge, power, and hope to the lives of those who are loving and caring for someone with dementia.  We also bring joy to the lives of those with dementia through Creative Music and Exercise Experiences.

Any stage in life can be an exciting time with many opportunities, or it can be a dreary time of confusion and entrapment. You may not be able to change your circumstances, but you can decide the circumstances won’t dominate you. You do have choices. Senior Life Journeys is here to offer dementia education and caregiver support. Let us travel this journey of dementia with you.

Mrs. Howell Opened my Eyes

“Mrs. Howell opened my eyes through her life journey and information to reach out to those who have Alzheimer’s or dementia or to family members who have someone who have these diseases. I now have more knowledge than I did before about these topics, therefore Mrs. Howell encouraged us all to use this information to interact with those who have these diseases and how to love them better.”

Your Weekly Emails Have Helped Me Cope

“I just wanted you to know your weekly emails have helped me cope with my mother’s mid stage Alzheimer’s. As of right now, she is in a good place with caring people to help her cope with her daily life. I know the situation is definitely precarious and can change at any time, so I am trying to make the best of the situation, appreciate all my mom is and was to me, and cherish all the good times as precious gifts. I think a lot of this attitude has come from your weekly emails (newsletter) that help me to know I am not alone in this journey.”
