Thirteen Lessons From Those Living with Memory Loss
The Gathering Place, North Seattle’s unique early-stage memory loss program, teamed up with Dr. John Zeisel of I’m Still Here, a foundation promoting a life-fulfilling approach to living with dementia, to develop 13 impactful memory loss lessons. Reflecting their real-life experiences, these lessons offer a distinctive perspective into challenges faced daily by persons living with cognitive impairment. A valuable resource for individuals, care partners, and professionals the “Lessons” are intended to positively impact the lives of those dealing with these issues.
The “Lessons” provide intimate insight and advice to others in the words of those living with cognitive challenges about how to be helpful. An important aim: to inspire a movement towards building dementia-friendly communities.
