Print Edition of Alzheimer's Weekly

People often ask for a printed Alzheimer's Weekly. Sometimes it is for a parent who is not comfortable with the internet. Other times, it is to hand out at a meeting or support group.

Here is our modest effort to help fill the need. Though it lacks glossy edge-to-edge graphics, it is rich in content and well-balanced. It is designed to keep you up-to-date on the latest research, medicines, therapies, care tips, prevention techniques, and so much more.



The Weekly comes as a simple, printable PDF file. Just click the link below and print.

Goals

The Print Edition's weekly batch of news, tips and insights should help anyone living with Alzheimer's and dementia. Our hope is that it will be of particular benefit to support groups.

Dementia support groups are a great challenge. It is so easy to let dementia's challenges take the group's conversation down a de-energizing, counterproductive path.

This Print Edition is meant to create talking points and conversation pieces that are hopeful, energizing and practical.

The Format

The Print Edition is typically about 10 pages long, providing fresh material for weekly discussions, while keeping the length down to an inexpensive and easy-to-print size.

The colorful cover page always sports a lifting "Thought of the Week" photo and saying. Beneath it is a recommended "Book of the Week" book cover, related to Alzheimer's and dementia.

The Table of Contents lets you know what's inside and where to look for it, as well as offering a list of a few of the week's latest videos. They appear on the website for free.

Typical articles discuss research news, as well as diet and recipe insights, prevention and care tips, and the latest in medication and treatment.

Feedback

The Print Edition is an ongoing project. Your help in improving it is greatly appreciated. Please suggest ways to make it better. Stories about how you use it in real-life situations, such as support groups, are great. Simply enter comments below.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

  1. As a community based (dementia-specific) OT in Western Australia I find your website an invaluable source of information. However, it is difficult to negotiate in some ways and especially so for older adults 75+ who are caring for their partners. Trying to find the free e-book advertised was difficult. Trying to find anywhere to contact you was mission impossible. Please could you make your contact details more visible and easier to access. I tried clicking on the email icon and it took me straight to 'blogger'. Also, could you possibly create an option to click on to access all the free e-books you have offered? I really appreciate that you offer a hard copy of your articles. This saves me time rather than having to copy and paste the desired articles into a Word doc to save. So appreciate all your efforts.

  2. I am bombarded with emails and ads for Alzheimer's cures. All have either a protocol or a combination of suppliments proven to cure. I think you need to start listing all of them and have some experts evaluate them for our protection. Trying to
    do it on the internet is useless because of all the phony independent third party reviews!

  3. I read the newsletter for my employer, whose wife has AD. He has macular degeneration and can not read on line. Having a print mode without the copy and paste is a real timesaver for me in the office. As caregivers age, this feature is wonderful and useful. Thank you.

  4. Do you have any powerpoint or other slides available for medical providers?

  5. No, though some of the seminars on this site make use of powerpoints and slides that would be helpful to medical providers. In the upper-left-hand column of this page is a list of topics in alphabetical order, just click on "SEMINARS".
