Andrews of Charlottetown community is hosting a series of talks on Dementia. We, the sisters and residents, are fortunate to join the staff and public. The first in a four-part series was presented by Dr. Tim Stultz, provincial Gerontologist, who gave an overview of what dementia is and the different types of dementia. The following week we had Sarah MacDonald, RN, who spoke on how to communicate and respond to people with dementia. The following two presentations are on Dementia from a pharmacological approach, and the Alzheimer Society of PEI will present the demographics of dementia in Canada and PEI. The Alzheimer Society also offers support to PEI residents in need. “Have you forgotten your keys lately?” No need to worry – that’s just a passing fad!

Gateway to contemplation: I have been accessing a great resource for the past couple of years which has greatly helped me in my contemplative practice. Father Richard Rohr, from the Center for Action and Contemplation, sends a short daily meditation along with suggestions for a meditative phrase. Check out for information on how to sign up for this daily meditation.

Movie: The Martian is an adventure story, based on a science fiction novel of 201l. A space explorer has to find ways to survive when he’s left behind on Mars. It’s not overly technical; has humor and imagination (for sure!). Matt Damon talks to himself (and to the audience) when solving problems (one-at-a-time). NASA (and Bob McDonald of Quirks and Quarks) say there’s a good amount of accuracy in the facts presented.
