I know my mother Molly would be deeply proud to be part of helping other families enduring their own journey with Dementia. It has always been in my mother's spirit to give back and help others in any way she can. Through the sale of our products, we promote Molly's Movement, which will create more public awareness while giving back to families and caregivers dealing with Dementia.
Meet 18 year old Jacklyn who has been helping take care of her Grandmother since the age of 5. The group at Molly's Movement selected Jackyn to receive a night out on the town with friends for a nice dinner and a movie. After speaking with her on the phone she said she wanted me to give the gift to someone else that needed it more. I insisted she accepts something and that she deserves it. I suggested a shopping spree, cash or maybe a new laptop. It just so happens she needed a new laptop so Molly's Movement shipped her a brand new Dell Laptop. Congratulation Jacklyn and we're proud that you are part of Molly's Movement.Molly's Movement Giveaway #2
A member of Molly's Movement by the name of Curry is currently struggling and dealing with Lewy Body Dementia on a daily basis. He helps other members of the group understand what it's like and answers questions people might have about Dementia and what it's like to live with the disease. Curry and his wife are amazing people and we support them through their journey. Molly's Movement contacted them and sent them money to go out to a nice dinner and a movie. We hope you enjoyed your night out!Molly's Movement Giveaway #3
out of Hillard Ohio contacted Molly's Movement and said they would love to give back to our Caregivers. We asked our group to share their stories and how this Giveaway could help them as a Caregiver and their loved one. Congratulations to Cindy Timco-Lott. She was selected to receive a FREE GrandPad
for one year. This is Her Story. I think my mother would benefit and from a grandpad. A year ago mom arrived back at her home after living with her boyfriend. (he never talked to me about moms illness he just sent her home, we are lucky she arrived here). She was very confused and talking about visiting her mom (deceased). I unhooked her car and moved into her house with her (across the street from my home) and have not slept in my own bed more than 4 days since. i provide 3/4 of my mothers care. She still is very verbal and can tend to herself but is coaxed to take showers. She's in complete denial that anything is wrong with her and that I'm the one who doesn't know what I'm talking about. But we get by one day at a time. My brother helps via communication he's in another state but can no longer communicate via regular computer as its to difficult for her. He sends her mail and calls on the phone. I've tried regular iPhones but they are to complicated she messes up the settings. Currently I only use a sitter while I'm at work and for necessities. All the other time spent together is with me.Molly's Movement Giveaway #4
On behalf of Molly's Movement and the rest of the Grasshoppers, we would like to treat Kami Wickersham to a nice dinner out on the town and a relaxing movie with popcorn and refreshments.
This is Her story.
Where to start, I have been a CNA for almost 15 years and dealt with dementia on many levels. Both my grandmothers have dementia, we lost on of my grandmothers in December to this awful disease. I would go see her anytime I could often times because of my little girl she would calm down and let me help her with things she needed when she was having bad days. The evenings where worse for her she would get so upset thinking she was going crazy she thought people where in her house we would have to search her house with her to help her understand it was the disease playing tricks on her. She would cry and say what is wrong with me I'm going crazy. My other grandmother is just starting to get to the point of not knowing if she's done something or she will do it over and over not knowing why. She calls me sometimes 20/30 times to tell me the same story. I go see her usually every few days with my mom she will often tell us things over and over. She is now forgetting to cook so my grandfather or aunt usually set up dinner, cooking it all so she just has to re heat things.

On behalf of Molly's Movement and the rest of the Grasshoppers, we would like to treat Michelle Nunez to a nice dinner out on the town and a relaxing movie with popcorn and refreshments.
This is Her Story.
My name is Michelle Nunez and my mom was diagnosed with alzheimers almost 9 years ago. To say our life's have changed since then is an understatement. Me and my family have decided to take care of all of mom's needs here at home with no outside help, we just feel that's the best decision for our family. Mom is at the late stages of alzheimers where she solely depends on the family for every and all of her needs, so care for her is around the clock. It can be extremely stressful at times but i always remind myself of our happy times and the love we share even now in her current state.. i know we won't find a cure in her lifetime but the more awareness we bring to this disease hopefully a cure wont be too far off in the future for many others.

LindaLou Lou's Story
My husband and I could really use a break. We have cared for my 91 year old mom in our home for the past 6 years. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer's about 4 yrs ago. She has been totally bedridden for the past 2 1/2 years. Even though I love my mom with all my heart the days just seem to run together. Nothing ever changes from sun up to sun down we do the same things over and over again.
I promised mom that I would not put her in a nursing home as long as I could care for her myself and if I did she would be at the point where she would not even know. She is at that point now but I can't bare to put her in a home. A night on the town would be so refreshing after this long long journey we have been on.
