2nd International Conference on Alzheimers Disease and Dementia
September 23-25, 2014 Valencia Convention Centre, Spain

Peter Maeck
Special Session: J Alzheimers Dis Parkinsonism
DOI: 10.4172/2161-0460.S1.007
Abstract
This presentation is based on TEDx Talks given in the USA and Europe. ?In prose, poetry, and photographs I celebrate my father?s brave, good-humored struggle with Alzheimer?s disease. My initial feelings of grief and helplessness ultimately lift with the discovery that as my father?s short-term memory erodes, his longer-term memory is sparked by pictures, poems, and music. We both come to accept dementia?s cognitive restrictions as simply new parameters for intellectual and emotional interactions, in the way that the restrictions of poetic rhyme and meter do not stifle creative expression, but catalyze it. In this way, my father and I move from a prose relationship into one of poetry, which is no better or worse, just different - less literal and more metaphorical - where we engage more in rhyme than in reason, freezing time initially but then melting it and coming together in that lyrical middle realm between what has gone before and what is yet to be?.
