    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    November is really here! Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

    Hi Everyone,

    I finally can report we have finished moving - now it's about how to find a place for the contents of all those cartons! Downsizing is some chore.

    My new book, Support for Alzheimer's and Dementia Caregivers: The Unsung Heroes will be available on by November 20th. Reading the stories in the book is like attending a support group meeting - I hope you find it comforting.

    Meanwhile, Thanksgiving will soon be here. If you can involve your loved ones by just talking about the holiday, and asking about how
    they feel about it, you may hear a response that will make Thanksgiving more meaningful for you.

    Have a good one,

    Hello Judy-

    The house I live in now, which I moved into 13 years ago, is much smaller than my previous house. I gave away so much stuff before moving here and was shocked to see that I still had way more than I could ever get into the house. I gave away SO much more stuff, and I've never missed any of it. I still weed out things every few weeks and even have some empty drawers and cabinets now -- a great feeling.

    I hope that you will be able to get all unpacked and settled in soon. I always knew that a new place had started feeling like home when I could walk around at night without turning on lights (not such a good idea, though, now that I'm getting older).

    Even though we don't currently have an Alzheimer's -- or any kind of -- patient in our family, I will look for your book. I know so many people who are caring for family members, and it could be a big help to them.

    Best of luck in your new home.
