Alzheimer's Pocket Videos

Alzheimer's Pocket Videos

by Andrea
November 13, 2014

For so many of us, Alzheimer's touches our lives in ways that open an infinite number of questions, questions that may have no answers. Personally, I have never experienced anything so confusing, heartbreaking and ultimately heart opening as this disease. It calls upon a strength far beyond what we feel is possible. Strength, compassion and wisdom as well as a deep and abiding love for the struggle of humanity. It is my deepest hope and desire that this disease brings us closer as a human family, in honor of the loved ones in our lives who are afflicted.

When I was in the midst of my first profound encounter with Alzheimer's with my own beautiful sister, I found these 4 short videos. They helped a lot. I am reaching out to them again now as another loved one in my life suffers at a difficult stage of Alzheimer's, with his family by his side. While these videos may not answer the millions of unending questions that arise, they answer a few, and they do so with simplicity, kindness and intelligence. If you know and love someone with Alzheimer's, take a few minutes to watch these short films. More importantly, if you know someone with Alzheimer's, reach out to them and their families with all your heart.

Together let's grow a new human family.
