Watch “Difference between Forgetfulness and Alzheimer’s” on YouTube

I was wondering about this topic….This video does a great job of explaining it in such a way that you can tell if you are just forgetful or may have signs of dementia.

Watch “MESSAGE Communication in Dementia: Strategies for Care Staff” on YouTube

This video was intended to help caregivers communicate with people that have dementia, but I think it would be helpful for anyone in that situation.  It may be especially helpful for those that are uncomfortable visiting because they are unsure of how to communicate effectively.

I HIGHLY Recommend ~ “Gone from My Sight” on YouTube

I believe everyone who takes the time to watch this video will have a better understanding of the natural process of dying. I am so thankful that I happened upon it. A friend came by and asked what I was watching and I said a video on dying. Which sounds so morbid and taboo. After watching it, I realize this information is not something to fear; it has changed the way I look at death and dying.

It is a gift to know how to recognize & help someone who is dying. I can’t thank Barbara Karnes enough for this gift.
Her book “Gone from my Sight – The Dying Experience” can also be downloaded if you Google the title. I haven’t read it yet but I imagine it will also be a great resource.

As the video is Barbara conducting a seminar, you really don’t have to find the time to sit and watch it ~ just listen…like a book on tape.

UNFORTUNATELY… IT LOOKS LIKE THIS AMAZING VIDEO IS NO LONG AVAILABLE ON YOUTUBE. Sorry. You could try googling Barbara Karnes for videos and books available on her website.
