I’m Megan ‘May’ Jeyifo, a twenty-something married with dog that loves black coffee, leaves, picking up new crafts and putting them down after 25% mastery has occurred, repurposing castoffs, the back porch, the Midwest and letters on real pages.

    • National Memory Screening DayFree, confidential momrey screenings for anyone concerned about momrey loss and early Alzheimer’s disease detection and intervention, sponsored by Visiting Angels in cooperation with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.WHEN:Tuesday November 13 2012Noon 4pmWHERE:Avalon Missionary Church. 1212 Lower Huntington Rd. Fort Wayne IN 46819INFO:National Memory Screening Day is an annual initiative of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA). Visiting Angels is proud to be a partner in this important first step in finding out if someone has a momrey problem, and in helping patients and families become aware of the resources and assistance that is available.While a momrey screening is not a substitute for a consultation with a physician, it can help to determine whether additional testing is warranted. With as many as 5.1 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease, and many more with mild cognitive impairment and dementia, early detection and intervention can be critical to making informed decisions for greater health and quality of life.For more information on momrey screening and resources to assist with ageing in place, cognitive impairment, mild dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease, contact Visiting Angels at 260-482-CARE (2273).

    • Wow! Kristen’s private click class exeedced all of my expectations. She is a natural teacher ~ organized, comfortable, patient, and encouraging. Your knowledge of your camera builds throughout the day until you have this giant A-HA moment when you are shooting in M ~ with everything coming together and making sense. Kristen is so creative: her house is amazingly eclectic, her cooking is YUM, and her photography is an inspiration and reminder as to why you are there. Thank you, Kristen!
