Alzheimer's + Technology = Chaos When They Forget

    • Mental Health

Season 1. Episode 9.  Thank you so much for listening to our podcast. In this episode we talk about our mom and technology.  Mom had a pretty good grip on computers and tech before her Alzheimer's and as it progressed (before we knew) she was famous for downloading viruses and unplugging things.  We even tried to get her an iPad thinking that if a two-year-old could use it, our mom with Alzheimer's could use it. We were wrong. 

We do have some lovely listener stories to share in this episode. The first comes from Laura. Laura's Instagram is here: https://www.instagram.com/scotgirl93/ and here is the link to donate to her Longest Day hike this year: http://act.alz.org/goto/200Miles2ENDALZ

The second story comes from Lickety Glitz of StumpedTownDementia.  You can read her blog here: https://www.stumpedtowndementia.com/, here Instagram account is here: https://www.instagram.com/stumpedtowndementia/ and finally here is the article written featuring her and her mother: https://www.wbur.org/hereandnow/2020/05/29/covid-19-dementia-surviving.

We are asking anyone with an Alzheimer's or dementia story to call or write in and share your stories with us (and everyone else who listens). You can call in at 850-254-9595 and share.  If you are international listener, outside the USA, you can record your story with your phone in a voice memo or you can use Zoom audio or your webcam.  Then email us the sound file at whentheyforgetpodcast@gmail.com. 

Let's keep sharing our stories.
