For safe travel I found that zero distractions are better. This is not a good time for discussion or conversation. All energy is needed to focus on driving.

Today at the Alzheimers Association SW chapter annual research conference I learned that MCI is a condition, and dementia in its different forms is a disease. Works for us! Since there is little research $$ for any condition ……big pharma has no interest!

The new program is a much needed resource for our senior population! Not sure how you can fit anymore "on your plate", but I wish you success.

Oct 23, 2018 · Now What? The Importance of Having Purpose as We Age in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

This is an interesting subject with MCI. Seems in our last three years we have changed our "sense of purpose" with the ability to carry out volunteer roles in our community. When something becomes difficult then the "sense of confidence" is threatened and we have to change our "sense of purpose".

Oct 13, 2018 · I Tried a Mediterranean Diet Meal Delivery Kit for a Week, and This is What Happened in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

This is a wonderful post. So much good info on the meal delivery services. When we try this we are so informed now. It seems like a healthy way to have a helper at meal time, save time shopping, and eat healthier than opting to eat eating out. Sometimes our energy needs to be used in other ways rather than being spent on meals. Thank you.

Jul 28, 2018 · Planning for the Future: Advance Directives in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

This is an excellent article on the subject. Having had my Mother live with us the last four years of her life in OK we had just gone through the "end of life" experience. All our advance directives had been completed in OK. When we relocated here to Mesa, AZ we did the new paper work required in a new state. That was just around the time of my husbands diagnosis of MCI. I'm sure everything would be the same; except for thinking about his name being my first choice on the documents. The children listed after him would step up and make decisions if he is unable in the future. There may be a question someday and changes make in the future if necessary. How do others handle this?
