World Alzheimer’s Day 2011

Dear Friends,

Today is World Alzheimer’s Day.  It is also the first year anniversary of the day our small team North of Boston launched the website,  The initial intention of the site was to serve dementia caregivers.  This group of 70+ million individuals worldwide, after four years of 24/7 dementia care, are at higher risk for heart disease, heart attacks, hospitalizations, chronic depression and anxiety, and death… due to the chronic stress of a dementia caregiving role.

Today we are proud to announce the launch a new free service on the website, designed to provide additional support to caregivers and care-receivers.  The “Me Moments Collection” is a podcast library of two-, five- and ten-minute relaxation breaks (including musical interludes) which users may select  based on their specific needs (i.e. relax or revive, meditate while sitting or walking, restore on a park bench, on a sofa, in a recliner…)  

The Me Moments Collection is available as a complimentary service to registered users of our website. There is no fee to register. Simply visit and sign up. We will email you a password and instructions for how to access the library. (If you would like to preview some of our Me Moments episodes before you register, visit .) 

ALSO NEW… Our recently published “Take Care of Yourself: Seven Sustainable Skills for the Long-Term Care Journey” journal and pocket guide is now available at the gift shop, Rest.Stop.Shop.  These print publications offer support and coping tips in the areas of intentional breathing, meditation, restorative postures, long-distance nutrition, 24/7 retreat strategies, art, music and movement therapies.

Please share these resources with friends and family members experiencing Alzheimer’s/Dementia and other long-term illnesses.
