Richard is an articulate, thoughtful, and thought-filled speaker to caregivers.

Hundreds of them have used his insights as the basis for conversations and insights into what might be going through their loved one’s minds.

His son and family live across the street from him.

He now spends his days playing with his two grandchildren, gardening, and writing.

His granddaughter Christina is learning to read and sometimes reads to him.

His garden becomes smaller and smaller each year; he plays bridge (with a cheat sheet) once a week and is halfway through editing another book of his writings.

I’m kicking it off with on my my favorites, so enjoy!

Once in a while, you have the unique pleasure of meeting someone that just stuns you. There are volumes written about Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, but I’ve yet to find one that delivers its message with the character and courage that Richard does.

While it is certainly their words that enter your ears, it is their demeanor that ignites their message. In our interview, Richard conveys such courage and leadership in his battle with Alzheimer’s that it has fundamentally changed the way I think about the disease.

This interview is a bit longer than our others (45 mins), but I highly recommend it for families grappling with dementia.

I also consider it a “must list” for people who have yet to spend much time with people affected dementia. Richard Taylor, a retired Psychologist, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s-type dementia in 2001 at the age of 58.
