One Response to Words of Wisdom about Change

  1. Hello Allen,

    I make a reference to you and your book, ‘Dementia Beyond Drugs’, in today’s article in the Huffington Post:

    ‘The Good News About Alzheimer’s: How Mindfulness Can Heal Patients and the Ones Who Care for Them’

    I was very much inspired by your book, and Richard Taylor’s story, as well as by my own experience with my mother, and with the patients at Zen Hospice Laguna Honda Ward.

    My dream is to create a training model for family and professional care partners, that allows them to find fulfillment in the caring relationship, through built in support and the practice of mindfulness. Very similar to the Zen Hospice approach, but taking advantage of the unique opportunities offered by the Alzheimer’s presentation.

    Please take a look. I would love to hear your take, and also receive your suggestions regarding ways that such an idea might get implemented.

    Thank you for teaching me so much, and for all the groundbreaking work you do.
