Do You Have Words of Mantra to Spell? - Alzheimer's 13

Morning prayers

We had a short conversation after finished a route walk in Walk to End Alzheimer's.

The most interesting in the conversation is the favorite words. The words or a phrase that we and the loved one with Alzheimer's disease always say.

In the stage of Alzheimer's with the sign lose words, some favorite words will remains.

I have my favorite words, or a phrase. It does not a bad words, or curse :)

Some of us in the that group of conversation said that they have some words to spell too when they just get up in the morning to give them the strength, to make the day brighter and happier.

Some of us, get up and reach rosary to say some words. Some of us just stare at the words “LOVE, HOPE, FAITH” in beautiful frame sit on the nightstand.

Another one in the group said that she love to reach cellphones to get daily quote from apps.



Tree for illustration

We have favorite friends with Alzheimer's who have favorite words. They always say these words to answer our questions or just a sentence that they want to say.

Let's call them Mrs Anderson and Mrs Brown, both of them with wheelchairs, eighties year old, both could not recognize any single person but they still know their name.

Mrs Anderson still able to talk, the words clear, but has no meaning. Every time she said something to us or ask something to us, whatever the answers she will spontaneous move her wheelchair and said, “Let's go!”

Mrs Brown lose almost all her words. When one walk closer to Mrs Brown, she will say, “Let's play!”. She said the same words every times. Some time she said two sentences. “Le's play! Catch me up!”

Those words could be a chant or mantra, and some research found out that mantra can reduce the worse risk of Alzheimer's disease.

I hope Mrs Anderson and Mrs Brown feel much easier with their chant or mantra from the severity of this disease.

I also hope our chant or mantra in the morning will work :)


How about you, do you have any mantra or chant or good words to spell every morning

  5. What a great task you accomplish with this series on Alzheimer's, Evi. You raise awareness.

    Of course I have a mantra and a faith that allow me to see these your posts as manifestations of consciousness and knowledge that we all may need at some time to face that terrible devastating condition for our loved ones, friends, family or ourselves. Thanks once again, Evi.

    I hug more than big. Huge.
