  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/

  11. 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.

  12. A Ring for Research
    Mar&Estrelas donates 50% of the profits on the sales of its signet rings to research into Alzheimers disease
    To celebrate the publication of "Al Zheimer's Alphabet", a serial book on the difficulties involved and the love required to keep a patient with the disease in their own home, Mar&Estrelas has great pleasure in donating 50% of the profits on the sales of its signet rings to associations dedicated to Alzheimer's care and support, as well as to medical research in general.
    The logo for the book is based on one of the designs of the High Jewellery signet rings created by Mar&Estrelas, which are made in France by a Living Heritage Company (EPV), member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), and certified by Joaillerie de France. The stones come from legitimate sources not involved in the financing of armed conflicts and in accordance with United Nations resolutions.
    To benefit from the offer, associations dedicated to medical research need only register in the "NGO Offer" section of the website marestrelas-rings.com. The association's name is added to the list of beneficiaries of the offer, and can thus be selected from the drop-down menu when one of the rings is purchased. The value of the corresponding donation is automatically indicated.
    In addition, patrons informed by each association of the offer benefit from a 25% discount on the public sales price – without affecting the value of the donation – simply by entering the discount code when they choose the name of the association to which the donation is to be made. The code is sent to each association when it registers.
    Unlike tax-deductible donations, an m&e® signet ring is a lifetime gift for a loved one, a treasure to be cherished for generations to come, and the most elegant way of showing a benefactor’s generosity in favour of Alzheimer's care and support, and medical research in general.

  14. Thank you for sharing the piece on the Virtual Dementia Tour. I would love for you to share a more current version of it in the future. Here is some information and a couple videos about the VDT that may be useful:

    https://www.healthysimulation.com/20134/virtual-dementia-tour/

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUWOfDupmZk

    The Virtual Dementia Tour® (VDT®) is the patented, ground-breaking, and evidence-based method of building a greater understanding of dementia. It is a scientifically proven method that builds sensitivity and awareness in individuals caring for those with dementia by temporarily altering participants’ physical and sensory abilities. The VDT uses patented sensory tools and instruction based on research conducted by P.K. Beville, geriatric specialist and founder of Second Wind Dreams®.

    The VDT enables people to personally experience the physical and cognitive challenges facing those with dementia by “walking in their shoes.” This experience results in better person-centered care. When conducted regularly, the VDT has been shown to decrease psychoactive medication and acute hospitalization for behavioral incidents. The Virtual Dementia Tour offers hope by providing practical ways to create an environment that supports the disease and increase understanding.

    Proceeds from the Virtual Dementia Tour are used to fulfill the mission of Second Wind Dreams to make dreams come true for elders who live in long-term care.

    The Virtual Dementia Tour:
    • Has been experienced by more than 3 million people in 20 countries
    • Is evidence-based and studied across cultures and over time with consistent results across variables and outcomes
    • Has been implemented in over 1,000 healthcare facilities in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Israel
    • Is used in more than 200 colleges and universities as an adjunct to existing curriculum
    • Meets and exceeds the federal government mandate that requires additional training for every healthcare entity providing care to those with memory impairments.
