Dedicated to the loving memory of our dear friend, "AlzJane198" - Jane Levy. It is our hope this room will continue to inspire, teach, and show compassion to all who enter, in the "caregiving spirit" Jane taught us.
This is a chatroom where people dealing with Alzheimer's can "Gather" at any time just to relax and talk to folks who care and understand. The "Pay It Forward" concept is what has made our room so successful over the years. Folks can "Gather" from 6:00-8:00 PM PST; 7:00-9:00 PM MST; 8:00-10:00 PM CST; and 9:00-11:00 PM EST Monday through Friday. The site will not officially operate on the weekends, however, folks are welcome to "Gather" during those same hours in hopes of catching someone home to visit with. Everyone who enters is responsible for keeping the room "clean" and making all who enter feel welcome and comfortable so they feel free to express their feelings, thoughts, laughter, tears, and fears.
Please remember this is your place to come in and have fun, let your hair down. This is "your" time to unwind. However, when a new person enters the room, we need to pay complete attention to the person. The same applies to someone who has been with us for a while; if they state they have a problem, then we pay attention. Also, please remember the opinions expressed in this room belong to the expressor and, therefore, no opinion is wrong. Please respect the person for their ideas! We offer no legal or medical advice on our site; rather a site to find a wealth of personal practical solutions from people who have been there and done that. And last but certainly not least, hugs, laughter, tears and shoulders are to be shared freely!

"The Gathering Place @ TheRibbon.com" certainly hopes and intends that you will be aided in your quest for Alzheimer's and related dementia and/or caregiving and health information by many of the websites listed on this page.
