A Shift in Perspective: Different, Not Less, guest blog article written by Trish Laub

“I had the great clarity that my dad was still my dad, that he might be different, but not less. He was not a disease, and Alzheimer’s was not his identity. I would work to keep his life as close to the way he would have lived without the disease.”

Meet Trish Laub of Comfort in their Journey

“I knew that what my family did to care for both of my parents while in crises was an act of deep love and a desperate effort to survive the physical and emotional toll. I also knew that I amassed an abundance of knowledge from it and could help others go through the process thriving instead of surviving.”

This interview allowed me to share my journey from care manager and caregiver for my parents to the creation of Comfort in their Journey. Click below to read the entire interview.

Help from the Heart for Alzheimer’s Patients and Caregivers, feature article by Dawn Williams, Senior News Associate Publisher

“People are reticent to plan for their end of life, as the process is highly personal and requires us to face our inevitable mortality, triggering fear and negativity,” Trish said. “When end-of-life planning is viewed as being as much for those who care for you and help you live your remaining days as you choose, it becomes a great gift. It provides a roadmap for them to follow and assists with a smooth transition for everyone, removing the stress of having to guess at your wishes.

“In addition, identifying your end-of-life wishes before medical crisis or end of life is imminent, allows for decisions to be made calmly, rationally and without fear. Discussing the plan with your loved ones removes the fear and anxiety for them of not knowing your wishes and can start an open conversation. It is a gift of peace of mind for everyone.”

MaryBeth Smith sat down with Trish Laub, author of three practical resource books about dignified end-of-life care, including "A Most Meaningful Life: My Dad and Alzheimer's." Well familiar with the Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education (her daughter, a ballet dancer, worked with Mme Peff Modelski and MaryBeth Smith to recover successfully from injuries via the Method), she has a keen appreciation for the quality of attention a Feldenkrais Practitioner can provide in their interactions with clients who live with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
