19 April 2011—Today in the TimeSlips Seminar (this is a project we’re working on with JMKAC’s Connecting Communities) we enjoyed a visit from Tracy Cinealis, CSA, of Libby’s House. Such insight into memory loss! She shared facts about dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. She shared stories from her experiences with the elderly. Though the students had researched questions about dementia, Tracy brought to light a more personal side. The respect and caring she expressed truly moved us. She also used some activities to illustrate what it’s like to gradually lose what you love in life, without choice or rhyme or reason. The students seem more eager than ever to meet and work with people with memory loss. All said they are less afraid because they are more informed.
