I am hoping a bit of the luck of the Irish in my bloodline will allow me to go back to Assisted Living Communities for Memory Care and start giving Essential Awakenings® Smell & Memory Sessions again! A link (below) to yesterday's article in being patient (a newsletter dedicated to the latest news on Alzheimer's disease and brain health) was based on an interview 2 weeks ago includes a video from February 2020 that brings back fond memories of the seniors who attended the Essential Awakenings® sessions. The article includes a personal statement about how I felt leaving these sessions and how I felt like I had been to my own therapy, because I realized how happy they were, and that they were sharing their own personal stories with each other. Here is the article from Deborah Kan's newsletter, being patient: https://www.beingpatient.com/smell-training-for-dementia/?utm_source=Being+Patient+Newsletter&utm_campaign=667c95c16b-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_11_06_03_59_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_95b92454c1-667c95c16b-220502033 For those of you who have elderly parents living with dementia, Alzheimer's or have diminished sense of smell, you may want to experience the Essential Awakenings® Sensory Kits for some Scent Therapy--whether it's for your memory care residents, for individual smell training, as a unique fun family guessing game (clue cards included), or even as prompts to help guide storytelling to your children, grandchildren or students. If you choose to purchase a kit, please write to me and I will give you a private code to use for a 20% discount.
What are my goals for 2022? I have developed a Corporate Sustainability Platform for which I will donate a multi-sensory kit in each state across the USA with focus on school districts located in impoverished communities. If you have a school district in mind, please feel free to contact me as the research to identify a school will be quite intensive for this one lady to handle!
