In the fall of 2019, I began writing a weekly column to post on LinkedIn called “Dementia Minute.” It was my intention to keep each entry short enough to read in a minute or two, although I haven’t always met that goal. More importantly, I wanted to offer bits and pieces of information, advice, and resources to change the negative narrative surrounding dementia to one of positivity and hope. My friends are living examples of the joys remaining after a diagnosis, particularly as they pursue their remaining creativity. Enjoy this archive.
