Summer Time!

We had a great group meeting on Monday - thank you to everyone for coming, and thank you to Xeljka from the American Parkinson's Disease Association,, for stopping by and sharing her information and lovely smile!

We will be having our July group on the eighth, and would love to see whoever can make it, but there will be no August group.  We will resume normal group time in September.  Everyone is outside in Seattle in the summer since it's the only time we get sun! Nobody wants to be sitting inside, even if it is for group.

I'll keep on posting, however, and I wish great summer weather for you all.

Group Time and a Book Review.

We have our fourth group coming up next Monday the 10th in Seattle, from 10-11:30.  I would love to hear how everyone is doing so I hope you all can find the time to attend!

Our Everett group is next Friday the 14th from 10-11:30 at the Carl Gipson Senior Center - everyone is welcome!

I have a great book for Lewy Body that I finished a few weeks ago that I'm recommending to everyone who is dealing with LBD.  It is called, Living With Lewy's:Empowering Today's Dementia Caregiver, by Amy and Gerald Throop.  It is an informative, fact-filled, comprehensive resource that is great for people who don't have much time.  The sections are clear and straight-forward and can be flipped to quickly if specific information is needed. It is a great resource to keep on hand for quick referral.
