While Christmas Shopping, don't forget loved ones in nursing homes. For Dementia Patients, as they begin to lose their verbal skills, their other senses become more important for stimulation. Gift Ideas:
1) Soft textured blankets or quilts with varying textures (touch)
2) Scented stuff animal (lavender is calming)
3) Night lights that project lights on the ceiling
4) MUSIC and music player (figure out if they can operate a CD or tape machine on their own. If not, ask to add to their care plan for the music on an MP3 player or on CD to be played each afternoon). Possibly include earphones. Music is great therapy for many dementia patients.
5) Schedule a visit. Even if they confuse you with someone else just human interaction can have a big impact. The gift is truly your presence.

Greetings. Wanted to spread the word about this awesome speaker coming to Houston on January 16th. Hope to see many of you there! Choosing a Good Death After a Long Life There is no easy way to approach end-of-life decisions. We all want to live well and die peacefully. On January 16th, Dr. Sam Harrington will discuss his new book, "At Peace," and steps we can take to ensure the end of life is as comfortable and loving as possible. "At Peace" has been called an invaluable road map for those facing critical decisions themselves as well as for their friends and family. A Harvard graduate, a physician for over 30 years, a hospice trustee, and a hospital trustee, Dr. Harrington has seen first hand that the American healthcare system isn’t designed to treat aging and dying with care and compassion. This is a special opportunity for you as well as for your family members and friends: Dr. Harrington is coming to Houston for this event only, sponsored by the Community for Conscious Aging and The Jung Center. His books will be for sale. When: Thursday, January 16, 2020 Where: The Jung Center 5200 Montrose Houston 77006 Time: 5:30 pm, doors open 6 pm, lite bites 6:30 pm, talk by Dr. Harrington Cost: $35 Register: https://rebrand.ly/RSVPHarrington Sponsored by the Jung Center and the Community for Conscious Aging, whose mission is to develop an inclusive community in Houston committed to mutual support and connectedness, to live intentionally with vitality and purpose as we age.
