Magazines

​Plans include producing two distinct print magazines for dementia caregivers, one intended to encourage the caregiver, and one designed to share with people living with dementia.

Magazines have played an important part in our story. Trish enjoyed magazines her whole life. As her memory loss progressed, we continued to share moments of joy with her as we looked together through magazines, scrapbooks, and photo albums. Also, Eric has decades of experience producing magazines, and he knows many talented people working in the publishing industry.

To launch both magazines, we need your help. First, we need financial donations to support the undertaking. Second, we are looking for families willing to share their own stories of loving and caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s. Please contact us if you would like to share your story. We promise to handle each story with care.

A Magazine for Dementia Caregivers

Songs & Smiles, a quarterly printed magazine, will be filled with articles, stories, tips, and ideas, designed to reach primary family caregivers and anyone else who loves and cares for someone who has Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Editorial content for departments and feature articles will encourage readers to Grieve, Rest, Invite, Connect, and Celebrate.

Planned subscription price is $15 per year. Subscribers will receive discounts on additional copies and gift subscriptions.

A Magazine for Sharing With Loved Ones

Joyful Memories will be a quarterly printed magazine designed for families to share with loved ones who have Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Content will be timeless and intergenerational, with original and curated pictures, stories, poems, and jokes. These themed issues will focus on particular interests to help stir memories and emotions.

Planned subscription price is $10 per year. Discounted bulk subscription rates will be available.

Please contact us us for more information or to share your story.
