This blog will be a place to post poetry written by people living with Alzheimer's disease. We will focus on poetry that is created as part of the Alzheimer's Poetry Project. We will post information and news about dementia. We hope this blog is of use to the family members who have a loved one with dementia.

Alzheimer's Poetry Project in Philadelphia
Held our third training session in Philadelphia last week and one of the poets Sojourner Ahebee, wrote about the experience in her blog.
"Participating in the Alzheimer's Poetry Project allowed me to discover another way of encouraging my grandmother, who has Alzheimer's, to be creative. She loves this very long poem by Langston Hughes called The Negro Mother. I am so impressed by how much of it she has remembered and she beams when she recites it."
Here is a link to the full post-
It was great working the Philadelphia poets including her mother!
Happy Mother's Day!
