  2. Someone needs to screen the comments. The "comment" following "Worried About Alzheimer's? Virtual Memory Screenings are Free" is all about some witchdoctor.

  5. Hello team at Alzheimer's and Dementia Weekly,
    My name is Clarissa and I'm a project coordinator at UC, Berkeley. I'm reaching out to you all because I'm hoping you might consider sharing the study me and my team are conducting testing in-home assistive technology for caregivers to those with dementia. This study is funded by the NIH and is completely free to participate. participants receive a free Presence Caregiver Research kit which aims to reduce caregiver stress and increase the safety of persons with dementia in their homes. We are closing recruitment for our study on December 15th and I'd be so grateful if you would share our study so we may reach as many people as possible who can benefit from this technology. My lab has been conducting research on caregiver well-being for over a decade and we're committed to improving the lives of caregivers. You can learn more at our study website at https://research.presencefamily.com/

  6. Would you be interested in publishing an article on using music to enhance the comfort level of one living with Alzheimer's.

  7. Hi,

    would like to know more details about the monthly sponsorship packages

  8. I published a picture book for ages 5-105 called "Papa's Changes, Dementia Through a Child's Eyes. It shares how a granddaughter adjusts the activities with her grandfather as his dementia progresses in order to keep their love alive. Backmatter includes caregiving tips.

  9. I have recently found information about Transcranial pulse stimulation (magnetic)(TPS) in neurology for the treatment of Alzheimer’s dementia. The company that has developed a machine is located in Switzerland.

  10. Al Zheimer's Alphabet
    (Or how to survive a fatal illness…)
    Normandy, 13 September 2021 – Some ten years ago, the wife of the author of this book first showed the signs of Alzheimer's disease. As the illness worsened over the years, despite the difficulties involved, against medical advice and family hostility, he decided to keep her in their home for as long as physically possible.
    "Al Zheimer's Alphabet" is the result of those trials and tribulations, with anecdotes and reflections, occasionally melancholic, sometimes funny, often profound but always lyrical on the meaning of their life together, and at all times related to the disease, such that, as author Malcolm Duff says, it has become a survival kit for anyone facing a fatal illness.
    The book is entitled "Al Zheimer's Alphabet" because when his wife was still capable of speak intelligibly she often split words into their separate syllables, with occasionally droll results. Because after a while, she no longer knew who she or anyone was, forcing him to relearn everything during her illness, from A to Z.
    He has deliberately adopted an unusual mode of publication, with the foreword and introduction available to all free of charge on the “Al Zheimer’s Alphabet” website. In Charles Dickens' style thereafter, subscribers have access to the four chapters published each month on the website for one year after the launch of the book, providing readers with a concrete but captivating account of life in the slow lane… to light.
    Together they face an enemy that can only be held at bay with the music of laughter and love, through the seven stages of the illness they have crossed and the seven steps to the wisdom the author has found, one that any helper may reach in taking the same path.
