Hey guys my film MARBLES is number 116 in the Lift off sessions! I would greatly appreciate it if any of you could take the time to watch my film and give it a vote! This 3 min 50 animated short documentary took me 6 months to make and means a lot to me. The film focuses on a personal story of my wonderful great grandfather and how he battled with Alzheimer's disease for a number of years. I hoped that this film would not only shed a light on the very personal and emotional effects of the disease but also help those who have Alzheimer's or know someone who does that they are not alone. ❤️ The link is in my bio❤️ if you have vimeo on demand or pay a screening fee you can watch a large collection of some amazing short films and vote for your two favourites. ❤️❤️Please help me to spread the word of my film ❤️❤️ #LiftOffSessions #LiftOffFilmFestivals #LiftOffSessionsJune #SupportIndieFilm #vimeo #animation #animator #animatedshort #shortfilm #film #films #filmdirector #womeninfilm #filmfestival #filmfestivals #filmmaker #london #londonartist #supportlocal #follow #like #alzheimerssociety #alzheimers #family #love #raiseawareness #documentary #documentaryfilm #documentaryshort @vimeo @lift.off.film.festivals

With an ageing population, medications to help treat the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) become more needed than ever. Statistics show that around 80% of patients show signs of agitation and aggression with an increase in prevalence as the disease progresses. Here at MAC, we understand that the condition is incredibly difficult to deal with.

THE POWER OF MUSIC . 'My wonderful mum was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease six years ago. She is now 88 years old and has spent the last two years living in a care home. I left the UK 11 years ago to start a new life with my family in New Zealand. At that time, Mum was great - working, driving, looking after her home and husband. Every year I return to the UK to spend four weeks with Mum, getting her dressed up, doing her hair and taking her out, getting to know each other again, reconnecting. Mum doesn’t acknowledge me as her daughter anymore but there is a deep bond - her face lights up when I take her hand. We share a connection that is more than the mind. This year I took some old headphones with me when I visited. I was aware of how music could trigger the senses, so I downloaded some of Mum's favourite songs. When I placed the headphones on her, playing Louis Armstrong's ‘What a Wonderful World’, her face went still, then tears came, then through those tears she sang every word! I couldn’t believe it, it was like I’d pressed the ON button. Every day we had ‘music time’ and every day Mum had the same joy. I had all her favourite tunes ready and waiting! One day, as I was walking her back to her room, she said, “Oh didn’t we have the best night!”, unsure of where we had been but that it must of been good. On another occasion she introduced me to a fellow resident - "This is my daughter Julie.” I was blown away!' .

Mr T was not engaged with our gardening group until I saw him brushing dirt off the table with his fingers. I asked him if he would like to keep the table clean and he he happily used the dust pan and brush for the next hour, gently moving to different areas of the table where he was needed. He felt involved, useful, included in the group and although he has little speech, we could tell he was happy❤😀 . . . . . #gardentherapy #therapeuticgardening #gardeninggroup #dementia #alzheimers #olderpeople #activities #activitycoordinator #nursinghome #carehome #residentialhome #tabletopgardening #gardeningforeveryone

•87 years young to my dad and grandad to my little one ⭐️ . . I love how you always still remember kaylen and have that warming smile and sparkle in your eyes ⭐️ . . ”Dementia, The Thief. It took away your days and nights And time became a blur It sucked your speech right from your mouth And your words became a slur. It slowly imprisoned you from your life When you couldn’t walk your miles It haunted your sleep and made you scared And wiped away your smiles Because it’s not just memory loss That dementia brings your soul It gives you torturous unwanted gifts To replace the ones it stole. It switched your radiant laughter and joy For agitation, sadness and fear And stole your independence And made your world became less clear. Your loved ones watched you disappear A little more each day They wished, but all so helplessly As it stole you right away And in the end are precious memories That you possess no more But instead your loved ones treasure them Deep within their core. I do not know if you remember me Or if I’ve been stolen from you too But dementia will never ever steal away The love I feel for you” - Hannah Hillier 2018. @alzheimerssoc #Myrock #bestdadever #bestgrandad #dementia #alzheimers #love #87years #firstmanieverloved #toddlerblog #motherblogger #motherhoodrising

💧💉 Aluminum does not naturally enter the brain. There is a barrier between the body and the brain that stops metals reaching the brain. In 2013 Akinrinade ID and his colleagues from Bingham University in Nigeria, showed that the relationship between fluoride and aluminum is important in escaping this barrier. Fluoride combines with aluminum to form aluminum fluoride, which is then absorbed by the body where it eventually combines with oxygen to form aluminum oxide or alumina. Alumina is the compound of aluminum that is found in the brains of Alzheimer's disease. Fluorine attaches to aluminum and influences its absorption. Li Fucheng and his colleagues from Beijing, China, described high incidences of osteoporosis, osteomalacia, spontaneous bone fractures and dementia in villages in Guizhou Province, China where they were eating maize which had been baked in fires of coal mixed with kaoline. Kaoline contains aluminum and fluorides. These diseases are very similar to those occurring in European dialysis patients, unwittingly treated with water and gels containing aluminum, which caused a wave of dialysis dementia prior to 1980s. The implications of this fluoride-aluminum relationship to Alzheimer’s disease are not linear. The solubility of aluminum and probably the ease with which it is absorbed varies markedly with the high acidity and alkalinity of water. In general, however, aluminum is most soluble in acidic water, especially if it contains fluorides. Chronic aluminum exposure and neurotoxicity In 1986, aluminum was first recognized as a neurotoxin in the USA. The US EPA has established a safe range for aluminum salts in public drinking water, which is 0.05 to 0.2 milligrams per liter. In a 2010 publication of Neurotoxicology, researchers from the Department of Medicine at the University of California showed how extended exposure to aluminum salts causes neurotoxicity. In an animal model, aluminum was given at low levels to determine acceleration of brain aging. They found out that aluminum salts can increase levels of glial activation, inflammatory cytokines and amyloid precursor proteins within the brain. #Alzheimers #Healing #Health #Knowledge

"This is my table in the dining room. Number 13!! Why? Why am I at that table? Do they think that it is funny or that I'm stupid or something? You know, the other three people at my table are also migrants...Polish, Greek... we've been through a lot in our lives. As a little girl I saw some horrible things during WWII. We're tough. Maybe they put us together at Table 13 because they know they can't mess with us" Lydia, aged 94.

And we’re back! I’ve had several friends and fellow hikers reach out recently to find out where I ended up, so here is the rundown of my past 6 weeks. If you recall from my Harper’s Ferry post this summer, I skipped ahead 300 miles so that I could be home in September for a music festival and a few friends’ weddings. I summited Katahdin on 16 Sept (saving those details for a future post) and made it home. Unfortunately, I was not able to make the road trips and attend the events as planned. Upon arriving home I learned my grandmother, whom I dedicated my thru hike to, was in poor condition. Within a few days she had passed. It was a rollercoaster of emotions for the time at home, but the good news is we are both in better places now. My grandmother finally finished her long battle against Alzheimer’s and I am back on trail, finishing my final 300 miles in her memory. This time I am “Spice-ing” things up a bit. While on trail this summer I acquired a @mercedesbenz Sprinter van, now dubbed Ace Vantura, which I will be converting to a camper over the coming winter and spring (give us a follow @ace.vantura to see the full conversion process and adventures along the way). I had also acquired a @specializeddiverge and @ortlieb_waterproof bikepacking bags last year in Korea, but have not yet had an opportunity to put them to use on an overnight trip. Between the van, the bike, and good old-fashioned hitchhiking, I have already hiked the 150 miles of trail between Daleville and Waynesboro, VA, AND ridden 105 miles back down the Blue Ridge Parkway. As I type this I am sitting in Front Royal, VA, at the north end of @shenandoahnps finalizing my plans to complete the mileage within the park and beyond to Harper’s Ferry, WV. @alzassociation fundraiser update: $8,172 of $8,800 goal raised. Please help me cross this finish line as well. Please donate (if you can afford it), share this post, or share the link to the @gofundme campaign (gf.me/u/m6cfic). #appalachiantrail #thruhike #hiking #optoutside #rei1440project #iamspecialized #doyoudiverge #neverstopexploring #vanlife #sprinter #choosemountains #choosehappiness #alzheimers #alzheimersawareness

🎯 WARNING 🎯 Taking CBD oil may be GOOD for your HEALTH! ✅ I wish I would have known about CBD oils sooner in life, because my inflammation and arthritis has decreased dramatically since I started taking the Patented #10xPure CBD oil. . ✅CTFO EXCLUSIVE!!! ✅ The NEW 10x Pure is a Revolutionary way to deliver broad spectrum CBD oil to the body by using the Patented 10x Supercharged Oxygenated Oil. . CBD Oil consists of Cannabinoids which are NOT water soluble. The process of using Nano Technology to assist in making the oil water soluble, offered by competitors, “chops” the molecules of CBD and this method actually damages the CBD molecules. The 10x Pure Patented Processing DOES NOT damage the molecules, keeping them intact and much more Bioavailable. . The Supercharged Oxygenated Oil LOVES water and mixes well with it and since water is the main constituent of blood, the 10x Pure Patented process allows us to transport natural, non-processed broad-spectrum CBD oil throughout the bloodstream, therefore resulting in greatly increased absorption and potency. . As with all supplements, Bioavailability inside your body is the key to attaining the positive health results we desire, so do your body a favor and use this Gift from Mother Nature to Stimulate Optimal Health and Support your Body’s Antiviral and Natural Healing Capabilities. . WATCH the Video at DewHealthy.com ✅ and discover why so many people are enjoying the many health benefits of CBD Hemp oils! . . . #CBD #Hemp #cbdoil #cbdvape #cbdlife #Holistic #HolisticHealth #HolisticHealing #HealthyLiving #Health #Wellness #NaturalHealing #NaturalHealth #Painfree #PainRelief #Arthritis #Alzheimers #Anxiety #ADHD #Brain #Cancer #Depression #Fibromyalgia #Epilepsy #Heart #Inflammation #Migraines #MentalHealth #PTSD

#WCW19 Myth: Incontinence is permanent. #Incontinence isn’t usually a disease by itself, it could be a symptom of another health problem. A temporary condition like an infection could cause it. If it’s due to a long-term illness like diabetes, remedial treatments like exercises, diet changes, devices, medications, and surgery that can treat both the illness and your #bladder problem.

He is the one I'll miss the most 💙 ⋒ Every time someone has been packing up bags to leave somewhere for the weekend or there's been bags laying around he has asked me if "you are already leaving?" Every time I've explained how we are just off to a short trip and will be back next week or how we (him included) just got back from our summer cabin and the bags are there because of this. ⋒ He might remember that our home is in Australia (has been for the past seven years now..) but usually he doesn't. I still keep telling him about our house we have bought, the school Noa will start in January, our jobs, the weather and all things life. ⋒ I've witnessed how Niila has become very important to him. Niila loves him too and always finds his great grandpa's face to smile at! He can't remember his name but calls him "a little man" or "a little one". Every time I've been breastfeeding Niila my grandpa mentions how amazing it is to be able to breastfeed and how handy it is to have your food ready whenever you need it. Go grandpa! ⋒ Yesterday I asked my mum if she thinks that grandpa will remember us and that we've spent almost three months in Finland. It's impossible to say but mum thinks that he will remember at some level. It feels sad but at the same time I'm happy that his life here continues as per usual. Mum said how his mind is always on a Saturday and what would be a better way to live than an endless Saturday 💚 We will soon see you again xx ⋒ #grandpa #paappa #Alzheimers #alzheimerintauti #homebound #memories #family #endlesssaturday #mumlife #rawmotherhood #beessential #bohomama #earthmama #boytribe #mamasrising #mamarising #motherhoodrising #finland #suomi #australia #ulkosuomalaiset

Momma some days I miss you more! Seems like every time it gets close to the 4th of July, it just brings back so many memories. You made every event fun! Decorations, get togethers with friends and family, LOTS of laughter and love! Thanks mom for a great example, for discipline, forgiveness for being a brat, a good work ethic, love of family, my community, my country and most of all Jesus! You were the best mom ever! Even all the years of Alzheimer’s didn’t steal your ability to be a good example.... beautiful grace even in sickness! Thank you mom for all you gave me! . . . . . . . #mom #love #grace #beauty #alzheimers #alzheimersassociation #family

Seriously, who even brags about their sleep chart from @fitbit ? 🙋🏼‍♀️ someone who regularly gives lectures on sleep and brain health. That’s who! 😂. Seriously though. Look at this beautiful night I had and woke up completely refreshed. Bliss. I’m for hire if your organization wants to teach their employees my tricks and tips for a great night’s sleep. . #lecturer #hireme #healthcoach #sleep #sleepexpert #zzz #fitbit #fitbitsleep #brainhealth #alzheimers #holistichealth #holisticliving #walkthetalk #goodnight #sleeping #sleeptime #sleepwell

From the creative clothing to wanting to get pushed on the swing by her own granddaughter, next to her great granddaughter ...I guess life goes full circle with dementia.

10 Things To Never Say to A Caregiver “Everything happens for a reason” “This is God’s plan” “At least it’s not cancer” “Think positive thoughts” “God won’t give you more than you can handle” “At least your ____ had a long life” “You look really tired” “Your _____ WAS a beautiful person” “You need to make time for yourself” “Why don’t you get some help” Things to say instead: How are you really doing? When is the best time for us to visit? Would you like to talk about it? Here is a gift certificate for ice cream or coffee. What day works for me to bring over dinner? I’d like to come over and sit with your loved one while you go out. Can I help you with the laundry? How is your loved one doing? I’m running to the store, can I pick anything up for you? Thank you.

Yes our mind and body does age, but there’s no rule or law that says you shouldn’t fight it! Quality CBD products might just help with the aches and pains, as well mental challenges you may be facing. We have a lot of older seniors who have experienced remarkable results with our CBD products. If you gave aging parents or grandparents , please introduce them to CBD. Please message me with questions and visit our website: 🌱www.CTFO-online.com🌱 #cbd #cbdheals #dementia #alzheimers #depression #jointpain #arthritis #aging #agingwell #holistichealth #seniorcare

I simply have too many thoughts and memories crammed into my mind...~Dumbledore . ~A very special #medalmonday for me. ~Last week I accomplished my 10k run for this beauty. The #Pensieve10k It was a run for the memories with so much love for Alzheimer’s. . Made me think that after everything we do every day no matter how little or how much, it will come a time that it will all become a memory. Maybe you can still run and workout when your 80 but if something happens at least you can be proud and remember all the wonderful things you accomplished in hope you do. That being said. Let’s live everyday the best we can making good memories and enjoying the journey while we can. ~Not everyone will remember 💙🙏🏼 For them we ran. . #irunforcharity #somuchlove #runnersofig #charitymiles #10k #alzheimers #runforareason #sharethove #potterheadrunningclub

After 4/5years of fighting to find in-home help with mom, we finally found an agency that has an employee. The very sweet young lady started today, she is just 17 and such a dear in the headlights. I had planned to be around and have someone shadow me until trust was earned for all, thank God.

A lesson in love... Love, it isn't what you think it is. We think love is when "the one" checks all the boxes. We equate love with beauty. Not the depth of your soul beauty... No, how someone looks..plain + simple. Heartbreak. It also isn't what you think it is. We think heartbreak is "he left me"...."he cheated on me"...."he doesn't think I'm pretty anymore" Let me tell you about love and heartbreak. As I sat at dinner helping my Mother bring her fork to her mouth, a husband sat feeding his wife. A young 72, his wife, the former Equestrian, sits dazed, forgetting that she even needs to eat. He visits at 3pm sharp every day. He sits and stares at the shell of the woman he once shared so much with. I cannot explain the palatable heartbreak as I watched him just look at her, close his eyes and shake his head. This, my friends is real heartbreak. So when you are searching so desperately for "the one". .. That beautiful, perfect person who ✔ all the boxes.... Ask yourself something. ▪ will they sit with me? ▪ will they feed me? ▪ will they fight for me? Because that, my friends, is love. - - - #truelove #alzheimers #alzheimersawareness #alzsucks #endalzheimers #caregiving #mom #naturehippys #love #loveyourmother #daughters #sunsalutations #illness #kickalzintheballz #ENDALZ #storyteller #healthcare #writersofinstagram #liveauthentic #eldercare #stylist #heartbreak #dreamon #gypsysoul #lifelessons #goodvibes #justbreathe #letitbe

Join us in expressing a sincere mahalo to Senator Dela Cruz for introducing Senate Bill 366 which funded the Alzheimer's and Related Dementia Services Coordinator position within the Executive Office on Aging. In Hawaii there are 29,000 people diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and 65,000 caregivers and this position helps coordinate public and private resources to address this public health crisis. We are thrilled to share that @govhawaii will be signing this important bill tomorrow!

Mom Chronicles 4-24-2019 No crown on her head today but I treated her and Miss Anne to one of the new cake batter shakes from Sonic. They both loved it!! We worked a puzzle and then were about to start a game of dominos when Miss Anne started getting upset with her phone. (They have it set up to go to voice mail or else she would call her family all day and night.) Heather (the aide) tried to get her to go back to the other house because she didn’t want to leave me alone with both of them while she was upset but she wasn’t having it. So I stepped in and said I was taking Mom back over to their house too so we could all go together. That appeased her. Luckily, once we got to their house her daughter happened to be there to visit her. That totally brightened her up. Perfect timing!! Mom and I then got to play a couple rounds of dominos. She was a little more off tonight with not even matching a couple of her dominos. She did seem a little more tired today. I ended our visit with the little song that she and Ted used to sing to each other: “I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck.” She and I sing it to each other at the end of every visit now. It makes her smile. :) #momchronicles #irememberme #cakebattershake #alzheimersawareness #alzheimers #alz

My father is now in the later stages of his Alzheimer’s disease. He still greets me every time I see him, with that familiar, warm, beaming smile and I run to him with my arms wide open – ‘Dad, it’s me, Nimisha, your eldest.’ I search his eyes for a hint of recognition, embracing him tightly. His arms stay firmly down by his side. These days, he doesn’t remember how to hug me back. When I was growing up, Dad treated my sister and I like his little princesses. He would always be ready to swoop in with a huge cuddle, providing us with an abundance of endless love, support and sound advice, encouraging us to be the best versions of ourselves. He would protect us from the hardships of life, acting as a shield so that we maintained our innocence and playfulness. Nowadays, family, friends, places and endless conversations all seem like a lifetime ago. Lately, people have stopped coming to see Dad and he spends his time sitting quietly, going through old photos. We spend our days happy and strong in the face of adversity, learning to appreciate the small things in life - like when Dad remembers my name on the rare occasion. These moments are the ones that bring joy. When I look into Dad’s eyes, I feel that he can remember our life, remembers that I am his daughter, his own. I went to Memory Walk with my sister, my husband and my two cousins. You feel such a pride in making a small contribution to what needs to be such a big change in how we view dementia and how the government treats dementia. I really felt a sense of belonging in a community, when you are surrounded by those thousands of people on the walk. And it’s important because the condition can leave you feeling so isolated and alone as a family!’ Credit @alzheimerssoc
