Lesson for September 2019

Lesson for September: Whenever you talk to a person with Memory Failure on the phone, make sure you are prepared to encourage them and start with a compliment. The constant phone calls, knowing they have forgotten you already talked today, can be very trying on the patience. Remember who has the Brain Failure and therefore who must make the decision to rise above this disease and bring joy to them with your first greeting. "Hey Mom! So great to hear from you today." You can screen your calls to keep your sanity but when you finally make time for that conversation, be sure to be part of the solution and not part of the problem. You can do it!
