It’s been 2 months since I last sat down to write a blog. I am sure of you have been ready to call out the Posse to hunt me down. Rest assured that I’m doing just fine. Actually more than fine. I’ve just been really busy.

September 20, 2019 I started working on a project. It started in the UK back in the early 2000’s and in 2011 it came to Minnesota in the form of the ACT on Alzheimer’s program. In 2015 a national initiative was launched called Dementia Friendly America. This concept takes the idea that our communities can make themselves readily available to assist in independent living for people living with any form of dementia.
This past Monday our group met for the first time as the Anderson Area Dementia Task Force. We will be working to bring this to the Anderson South Carolina area, which will be the first county in South Carolina to be listed on the national initiative.

That has taken an enormous amount of my time almost every day, but now that the holidays are here it will be a bit easier for awhile. AND THAT IS A GOOD THING!

As of yesterday I have also accepted the position of Alzheimer’s Ambassador to Jeff Duncan, US Representative for my district. So my plate is really getting full. But I don’t mind. Like I’ve always said, the more you know, the better prepared you’ll be. And I’m learning alot in all this!

I also just got back from Columbia SC where we attended the SC Alzheimer’s Research Conference and me and my wife had the pleasure to be panelists for the final session of the day. We were both excited to learn so much about what great developments are on the horizon for people like me who live each day with this disease.
In case you can’t tell, I’m really pumped about what all lies ahead for me and I can’t wait to keep you included on my journey.

Thank you all for the support you’ve shown and I hope you stay with me on this path that we’re on!
