For this weekly blog post we wanted to share something that was forwarded to us in the weekly Alzheimer’s Newsletter that Carol receives. She felt it was pertinent and valuable to those who are care partners or have family members with dementia. She also wanted me to make it clear that we did not make this content and do not claim any ownership of it, which is why we posted it here and not on the main page.
Instead, we are sharing it as a personal post in hopes that it helps or speaks to any of our readers.
Hope you are all having a wonderful week, Lewy Warriors.
This is the first post in the official CLBDI blog! As previously mentioned, this past October we hosted a private launch party in Waterloo. It was a wonderful night and turned out to be a great success. Friends, family and Advisory Board members came out to have some snacks, hear our story and learn about the project, get a hosted website tour and toast to the new endeavour. We even had some lovely people make donations towards Robarts and the Trust Fund! Amazing! We thought we might share a few photos from the party and say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who came out. Much more is coming in 2020 and we can't wait to share it all with you.
We have plenty of content to share with you coming down the pipe in the final months of 2019 and early 2020. We will have new videos, new ways to connect with us and our community, new ways to support the cause and each other, CLBDI merchandise and so much more. Furthermore, we will be launching our live Lewy Body presentations in the coming year and will have plenty of information on that.
First up, "The CLBDI Blog" will launch in the coming weeks. All news will be moved there but for now you can continue to check for updates here. Carol wanted to share this image with everyone in hopes they might find some comfort. All the best to you.
We are proud to say that Canadian LBD Information has launched! To celebrate this, we are hosting a private launch party in October. Following this event, we will be bringing more content to the site including some informational videos, a blog and more ways to connect with us and the community. We wanted to welcome you to the site and to state, once again, that we are always looking to build our selection of resources and community. Please feel free to reach out to us through our "Contact Us" page for any reason (share your story, information/resources, or just to reach out to a fellow carer).
Carol and the Canadian LBD Information Team
The CLBDI blog is run by Advisory Board member Joseph Daniel.
