The power of love may help Alzheimer patients

Your wedding day was one of the happiest days of your life (hopefully) and an Edmonton, Canada care center, McConnell Place North, has been re-enacting wedding ceremonies to help stimulate Alzheimer patients memories. It's a unique approach and there's no scientific proof that it works, but at the very least, it shows how strongly a loving memory can impact a severe illness.

If you have a parent suffering with Alzheimers, perhaps this is something you could suggest to their care provider.

Please post your story or e-mail me here if you receive a positive response from a care provider.
