About

This site was inspired by my Mom's autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week's river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer's or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site's focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 6 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.

  1. Your site is wonderful. I often wonder who is behind most ALZ stories, and many times it turns out to be drug companies or care facilities. THank you! In return I want to share something sweet.
    My daughter was born the same time that my mom was diagnosed and we have been on this Alzheimer's journey together and through all of it's crazy stages. She just wrote and recorded a song about her and my friend cut together some video. I think it shows the importance of loving the person for who they are at that moment. I hope you take the time to watch, because we are listening to all that you do to help us make it through these days. Thank you. This is the youtube link.

  2. I'd been enjoying your site until today. Your touting coconut oil is very disappointing. The completely unproven claims for coconut oil as a treatment for Alzheimer's have caused thousands of people to spend money on this bogus treatment and, worse, have raised hopes without justification. The Alzheimer's Association has made this clear and pointed statement about these claims:

    "The coconut oil promise has been around for more than three years. If the administration of coconut oil was, indeed, beneficial, it would be shouted from every mountaintop"

    For an extensive analysis of the claims, see my blog posting -- http://bit.ly/T1ttm3.
    I notice you also are selling coconut oil in your site's store. I'm disappointed.

    1. John, I know that its important to clarify when something isn't working so that people don't waste their time and money. My problem is exactly the opposite so maybe you can help me. You see, I've found that the combining of near infrared light therapy with brainwave biofeedback training can stop and even reverse the dementia process. We've done small studies showing that both of these approaches can improve memory and behavior and see the combination approach working very well with the few people who have been willing to try it out. Our problem is getting people to take this alternative approach seriously and try it. Clinical trials are being developed now for age related memory impairment and a longer term ongoing trial for dementia and another for Parkinson's. We'd like the Alzheimer's groups to let their folks know about this non-drug, non-invasive option. Marvin Berman PhD www.quietmindfdn.org

  5. I am a 16 year old sophomore at Boston University who is dedicating his life to help Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers. In 2008, I founded PuzzlesToRemember, which, by now, has distributed over 19,300 puzzles to Alzheimer’s facilities around the world. I also volunteer 20 hours a week in an Alzheimer’s research lab.
    I recently learned that I am the recipient of a $1000 grant from KidsWhoGive, which is a philanthropic program run by Farm Rich Products. I will be donating these funds to the Molecular Psychiatry and Aging Lab at BUSM.
    Donating consumer goods like puzzles is helpful, but the knowledge created from research can have a much wider and longer lasting impact on society. There are 5.8 Alzheimer's patients in this country alone, with a new patient being diagnosed every 58 seconds.
    I recently learned that KidsWhoGive having a “run off” competition between the nine students they have chosen throughout 2012. These students are being voted on by the general public. The winner will receive $10,000 for their “cause” I would really like the opportunity to provide $10,000 for research at Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center.
    Please vote here every day until Feb 5 and help me bring this money to research. Just click on the word “vote”
    http://kidswhogive.com/vote-on-entries/entry/?submissionId=164
    This is a wonderful opportunity for people to donate for Alzheimer’s research without it costing them anything. Please share this information with your colleagues, post on your facebook page, your blog and publicize anywhere else in order to get as many votes as possible. It could make all the difference!

  15. Hi there,

    Hi Webmaster,

    While researching health blogs I saw your blog post 'Slow-rate Sleep halts Alzheimer's Build-Up In The Brain' which provides readers with a lot of helpful advice. I really enjoyed it as it offers so many tips and ideas how to keep your healthy and obviously sleep plays an important role. Not enough sleep can even lead to migraines. Again, great post - thank you for sharing.

    I would like to contribute and maybe write a guest post for your blog with a leading nutrition specialist. We are trying to increase Migraine and Alzheimer awareness on the occasion of the Migraine Awareness Week (1st September to 7th September 2013) and the World Alzheimer's Day (21st September 2013).

    How do you feel about working with publishing partners in this area of expertise?

    I look forward to hearing from you soon. My email address is ihunkeler@blueglass.co.uk.

    Warm regards,

  16. Hello,

    Your article "Solanezumab May Become The 1st Alzheimer's-Modifying Treatment" was really interesting! More research for disabling disorders like Alzheimer's is key to early detection. I personally believe raising awareness for disabling disorders like Alzheimer's is the pathway for more research opportunities. Research opportunities can shed more light on diseases related to Alzheimer's. Have you heard of mitochondrial disease? Defects in the mitochondria are attributed to a wide spectrum of diseases like Alzheimer's (http://mitochondrialdiseases.org/alzheimers/).

    I work as an intern for the Foundation of Mitochondrial Medicine. The Foundation for Mitochondrial Medicine is dedicated to spreading awareness for mitochondrial disease. I would be interested in connecting with your website in a way that would be mutually beneficial. The organization I work for has articles that would be relevant to your audience, we would love to share the content you post here at Alzheimer's Weekly.

    Feel free to contact me at anc19@live.com.

    Thank you for your time,

  17. Hello,
    I love the variety of all of the replies to your articles. Very interesting.
    I wanted to share a new tool for caregivers. As a memory care director, I learned the value of using music to stimulate as well as entertain. I designed LifeSongs recordable memory books that are used to tell a person's life story through photos and meaningful music. It is a 12 page oversized book where your create photo collages for 12 chapters of a person's life. Then you choose and record 12 songs that have meaning to the person with dementia.
    LifeSongs is then used to reminisce, distract and even calm negative behaviors. It is great for caregivers to have a focus for communication even when the person can no longer speak.
    Please visit www.LifeSongs.info to learn more about the magic of music & memory.
    Thanks,
    Suzanne Lyon

  19. Dear Alzheimer's Weekly,

    I was wondering if you could connect with me via email or a contact number?

    We're a New York based company who specialise in personally interviewing family members to preserve their legacy and spread their personal stories to future generations with a video memoir. You can find examples and more on what we do on our website:

    http://livinglegacypictures.com/

    We would be really interested to working closely with Alzheimers and Dementia patients as we've found that family members of those suffering would want to have their loved ones tell their life story through video, capturing them before they degenerate in order to share with the next generation.

    The interviews are led by Ellen Fisher Turk, documentary producer and photographer who has worked with women and children therapeutically for the past 30 years.

    We're looking forward to hearing back,

    Best,

  21. So many great comments and suggestions! As a professional memory care director I used music in many of the sensory activities for my Alzheimer's residents. I then designed a book called LifeSongs. It is like a photo album where you tell a person's life story in picture collages on 12 pages. Then you record a meaningful or favorite song for each page. The music really helps to trigger lost memories. It can both stimulate and calm a person. I'd like to sell LifeSongs on your website. Please visit www.LifeSongs.info. They are very reasonably priced and unique. My email is suelyon56@gmail.com. Thank you, Suzanne

  26. Hi, Alzheimer's Weekly,
    I just wanted you to be aware of Dementia Mentors.
    Dementia Mentors is about helping newly diagnosed patients understand their lives aren’t over.
    Imagine receiving a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. Few things would be as frightening; few things would elicit such a strong sense of being alone.
    Those involved in this project know firsthand how frightening it is to hear the words, “You have dementia.” For this is an international coalition of people living well with dementia.
    This is a website created by dementia patients, for dementia patients. That means simple navigation, pleasing to the eyes, clear, and concise presentation. Someone having problems reading the text can simply click a button to hear the passage read aloud.
    Dementia Mentors is now up and running and we’re already scheduling mentoring session to help those who are living with dementia. As said, our goal is to help the newly diagnosed get and stay on track right from the beginning. Come check out the new website and please share. Thank you.

  27. I've been working very hard to formulate a natural supplement backed with real science to help sufferers with Alzheimer's and dementia. And my company in the United States has finally released it!

    Rather than go through Google, I thought it would be better for you (and maybe for me too) if I could advertise directly on your site. I could pay you per click for a banner or I could give you a revenue share of the sale price.

    It's an important message of hope I have for the 5 million plus Alzheimer's sufferers and their 15.5 million carers.

  38. Hi, Peter –

    Your post today is titled “Prevent Alzheimer’s – Start Young.” We agree!

    You also might want to consider: although meditation is believed to be over 5,000 years old, scientific research on it is in its infancy. However, research has shown that it has a direct impact on memory loss.

    Which begs the question; can meditation prevent Alzheimer's disease?

    An article in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease suggests that it's not only possible, it's showing great promise.

    On the heels of his participation in the White House Conference on Aging this week, author Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D., president and medical director of the Alzheimer's Research and Prevention Foundation, can discuss these findings with you including:

    * Stress, aging, and neuron death
    * Review of the literature covering various meditation practices and their impact on memory, such as relaxation response, transcendental meditation, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and Kirtan Kriya
    * The new frontier in Alzheimer's prevention called "spiritual fitness" and what the cultivation of higher levels of psycho-spiritual well-being means in the context of brain health

    Please let me know if you'd like me to connect you with Dr. Khalsa and please see his article here:

  39. Dear Peter:

    Reputable scientific journals have reported on the correlation between aluminum and neurological degradation, but now a U.K researcher is hoping to launch a new clinical trial to confirm this connection among Alzheimer's patients with an eye towards silicon as a possible treatment.

    If you can send me your email address, I'd be happy to send you a press release with more details.

    Hoping you can help get the word out so that funds can be raised for this "People's Trial" and an effective treatment for this devastating disease can, hopefully, be identified.

  41. Hello Peter,

    I am currently 27 years old and have watched my family cope with the aging and deteriorating mental state of my grandfather over the last few years. We've done a considerable amount of research concerning Alzheimer's & dementia during that time and certainly appreciate the work you're doing. One of the bigger issues my family has dealt with is handling his financials - I wanted to share this article with you and any others who may be dealing with similar issues:

    http://www.creditcardguide.com/creditcards/parents-and-finances/6-ways-to-deal-with-a-loved-ones-dementia-and-debt/

    Keep up the good work,

  44. I had the pleasure of visiting your website which was extremely enlightening. Our company can certainly identify with the importance of getting involved and making a difference. That’s what prompted us to develop a product that would make it easier to care for people who are suffering from memory loss. (i.e. Alzheimer's. Dementia, etc.)

    Our product is being targeted to caregivers and family members who have a loved one that is suffering from memory loss. The monitoring app lets caregivers and family members coordinate their activities keeping them informed about their loved one’s location and condition. Unlike competing approaches, this product provides indoor and outdoor coverage.

    The product is a Canadian innovation that took over 2 years to develop. We are now ready to share our technology with caregivers and family members around the world so that we can make their lives easier and provide them with greater peace of mind.

    We would like to talk to your company about offering our product on your website. Please confirm the contact info for your buying department so that we can explore the possibilities.

    Thanks,

  45. I am new to your site, but am finding many helpful and interesting articles. I am the primary caretaker of my 98 year old Mother,who has recently been diagnosed with late stage dementia. The difference between her and most of the other people that are referred to is that my Mom is blind, so finding things to stimulate her becomes very difficult. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on dealing with dementia patients who are blind...it does change the dynamic of caregiving for them.

    1. Music is one of the best therapies for Alzheimer's, and I have heard that blind people have even better hearing than people who are not blind. Music, especially older music, sounds like a great way to go. For more, watch the video:

I am a OT who recently put together a free dementia clock android app that provided the writing the day clock uses- e.g its Thursday Evening which I thought addressed a need of a simple app version of the day clock (the make your own clock app is much better but I figured it would be nice to just have one you can install).

  49. Hello Peter,

    My name is Andrea Asuaje, and I work on a radio series called 'Kind World' at WBUR, Boston's NPR station.

    I’m reaching out because we recently published two stories that involve inspirational men inflicted with Alzheimer’s and dementia – two very different stories but both focusing on the kindness of others.

    http://www.wbur.org/2015/12/11/living-with-dementia-a-former-addiction-counselor-relies-on-a-patient-he-once-helped

    http://www.wbur.org/2015/12/17/kind-world-20-that-way-madness-lies

    Both caregivers and those who have yet to confront Alzheimer’s and dementia can relate to these compelling stories. And I believe the greater community involved with Alzheimer’s Speaks – patients, those caring for loved ones, those fighting for a cure, even medical professionals – would greatly appreciate these moving narratives.

    I’d love it if you would consider sharing these stories on social media or with your community. The Kind World team is aiming to reach as many people as possible with these stories of hope.

    Thank you so much for your time.

    Best,
    Andrea Asuaje

  50. Hi Peter,

    I've spent nearly 10 years documenting my own family's struggle with Alzheimer's and building the Carpe Kilimanjaro Alzheimer's Project. I'm familiar with the great work you're doing within the Alzheimer's community and I'm hoping you might share our story with your followers.

    Our feature documentary, "Carpe Kilimanjaro: An Alzheimer's Story", won BEST FEATURE DOCUMENTARY at the Evolution International Film Festival in Mallorca, Spain, in November and we've just begun submitting to other festivals. Carpe Kilimanjaro is the tent-pole component of a multi-prong strategy, to help shatter the stigma and get more funding into Alzheimer's research. As you already know, this disease is the epidemic of our generation and we hope the power of story can help the scientific community and localized efforts around the country. So we've partnered with a company to help bring our feature documentary to movie theaters around the U.S.

    Goal #1: Alzheimer's organizations screen our film to help raise awareness AND money for their local efforts. Here's a link to a short video that explains how it works:

    http://www.carpekilimanjaro.com/watch-the-film/

    Additionally, we launched our unique story platform www.myalzheimers.net. We're adding more videos every month, but our blog currently features over 150 video stories, from caregivers, doctors, and Alzheimer's patients.

    Goal #2: Build MyAlzheimers.net into the world's largest collection of Alzheimer's video stories.

    This is a personal project and I've been bootstrapping for years. I hope you see the merit of our project and feel compelled to share with your community. Additionally we invite you to share our growing video library, with those looking to raise awareness and local funding, and find a cure. I'm happy to chat more or answer questions, so please feel free to email me back to discuss.

    Thank you!

  51. My organization is seeking to study the use of noninvasive non-drug treatments for stopping and reversing neurodegeneration. Our clinical trials now focus on the use of near infrared light stimulation to improve brain health and protect against damage and brainwave biofeedback to renormalize neuroelectrical activity patterns. We have two clinical trials now that will involve home use of the infrared light therapy for 90 days. Testing involves standard measures of memory and cognitive functioning as well as a brief EEG recording using noninvasive scalp electrodes. These studies are to show that there may well be ways to improve cognitive and physical symptoms of dementia that do not involve the use of drugs.

  53. Sharp Again Naturally collects and publicizes science-based information on reversible causes of AD and other dementia diagnoses and advocates for new testing and treatment protocols that address those reversible causes. So far we’ve identified nine categories of reversible causes. Any one or more of them can be what is causing cognitive decline. So coconut oil may help with a person with insulin resistance, but be irrelevant for someone whose main problem is a drug reaction to statins.

    Our Medical and Dental Advisory Board is in the process of formulating testing and treatment Guidelines. Their purpose is to help families and physicians ensure patients don't go down the tubes just because no one thought to check out conditions that could have been reversed "if we'd only known." Because I had the information we provide, I was able, when I had symptoms of my own, to find the help I needed to determine the main causes and recover. www.sharpagain.org

    Sharp Again will be appearing with Drs Perlmutter, Hyman, and Dale Bredesen of the breakthrough UCLA-Buck Institute study (90% recovery rate) at the OMEGA Institute in Rhinebeck NY July 1-3 to present this fresh paradigm for testing and treatment. https://www.eomega.org/workshops/hope-for-dementia-alzheimers-disease#-workshop-description-block

  54. Alzheimer's documentary screening at two Florida film festivals this month

    My name is Jacquelyn Lobel and I am a filmmaker based in New York.

    I work for a company called HealthiNation – an Emmy Award-winning online film and video network. We recently produced a short documentary film called “Care Until Cure: A Second Chance at Alzheimer’s”.

    The film is based in Naples, Florida – the epicenter of aging in America – and tells the story of Kenn Voegele and his family, who were struck twice by Alzheimer's Disease. Shaken by an Alzheimer's diagnosis in both parents, and struggling to be the caregiver he wanted to be, Kenn spoke up and discovered his life calling. Today, Kenn is active in the Naples community, working to help both individuals affected by Alzheimer’s as well as their caregivers, spreading awareness as to the impact of the disease on both those afflicted and their caregivers, and supporting and building resources to offer the highest quality of care until there is a cure.

    We were recently thrilled to find out that our film has been accepted by two film Florida festivals taking place this April!

    First up is the 10th Annual Fort Myers Beach Film Festival. This will be the world premiere of our film!

    Fort Myers Beach Film Festival takes place from April 20th – April 24th, 2016 in Fort Myers, Florida and is back for it’s 10th year. Attendees come from all over the world to celebrate filmmaking and we encourage you, your friends, family and colleagues to join us for the screening of our film. Please contact Fort Myers Beach Film Festival for information about tickets.

    Fort Myers Beach Film Festival Screening Details:
    Friday April 22nd
    Shorts Package #3
    3:00pm
    Ft. Myers Beach Theater
    6425 Estero Blvd, Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931

    Our film was also accepted to the 11th Annual Sunscreen Film Festival! We are so excited that it will be an official selection in the festival.

    Sunscreen Film Festival is sponsored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It takes place from April 28 – May 1, 2016 in St. Petersburg, Florida. The festival is dedicated to educating and entertaining the public on the art of visual storytelling. Celebrity guests have included John Travolta, Kelly Preston and Patrick Wilson. In 2013, Sunscreen was one of only 23 film fests nationwide to be sponsored and acknowledged by the Academy.

    We encourage you to attend the festival with us! Tickets are available here: http://sunscreenfilmfestival.com/festival-2016/schedule/

    Sunscreen Film Festival Screening Details:
    Friday April 29th, 2016
    Documentary Shorts Block
    11:15 AM – 1:15 AM
    American Stage Theater Company
    163 3rd St. North, St Petersburg, FL 33701

    Creating more awareness about the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease, as well as all dementias and related memory disorders, is so important to us, and we are especially concerned about how unprepared our country is for this growing epidemic. We would love to have your support in spreading Kenn’s message.

    If you are interested in attending either or both of the festivals, please let me know! HealthiNation is planning a couple of happy hour events to celebrate the film screenings and we would love to extend an invite to you and your team.

  56. Lithium’s Neuroprotective Effects
    Patty Duke’s recent passing brought my attention to the fact of her long battle with manic depression or bipolar. Since long ago I had previous experience with a friend who passed from manic depression, I was curious as to what her recent experience was with the disease. She has written two books on the subject, one an autobiography, and one her experience with the disease. I bought both books and started reading. Every other chapter in “Brilliant Madness” is written by her psychiatrist.
    My wife passed from Alzheimer’s three years ago. As I’m reading Patty’s book, I’m starting to make connections between my wife’s very early stages of manic depression (which I did not recognize), and my subsequent fifteen years I spent with her at home taking care of severe Alzheimer’s. Manic depression, according to Patty, like Alzheimer’s, is often under diagnosed. Patty started experiencing the disease in her teens and was 35 years old before she was finally put on lithium. Her disease was not subtle. There were many manic episodes, and many suicide attempts.
    Scientists have now started making connections between manic depression and Alzheimer’s. The severe depression from bipolar causes changes in the frontal lobes of the brain similar to the vascular dementia in Alzheimer’s.
    Patty was treated successfully by lithium for 35 years until her passing from a totally unrelated intestinal break followed by sepsis at age 69.
    There is now speculation in the medical community examining the possible effects of lithium on treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. At the American Psychiatric Association’s annual meeting in San Francisco, Ariel Gildengers, MD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh, told scientific session participants that “more than 75 studies and more than 5 reviews have established an association between bipolar disorder and cognitive dysfunction (Alzheimer’s).” Lithium, used to treat bipolar disorders for more than a half-century, has neurotrophic and neuroprotective properties that may help preserve cognitive function in patients with bipolar disorder and possibly in those with Alzheimer disease.
    Lithium causes increased activity in the brain associated with an increase in tau hyperphosphorylation and alterations in amyloid-β processing related to the formation of neurofibrillary tangles and plaques, which are the hallmarks of Alzheimer disease. “What I’m suggesting here is that lithium may be a treatment for Alzheimer disease,” Gildengers said

  58. Hi there! Thank you so much for your conscientious and informative emails, they are invaluable to me as a filmmaker trying to bring the issues of dementia and caregiving to the big screen. My next and biggest project yet is Frame of Mind, the story of Joanne who cares for her father, living with dementia. Right now, our project is at the stage where the most valued contributors are the strong members of the caregiving community. We want to build a thoughtful and sensitive a campaign as possible when it comes to crowd funding for our film. We are gathering thoughts and feedback about our project via the following questions: http://goo.gl/forms/RXmeOKAmoIjfDV1E3
    I would be deeply grateful if you could help us gain as many responses as possible from the caregiving community, and perhaps share the link these questions via your newsletter.
    Your help would bring this story closer to being possible and will help us bring the issues of memory loss to the big screen.

  59. Our recent conference at OMEGA Institute took place July 1-3 in Rhinebeck NY “Hope for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease” for both lay and professional audiences. It featured three world-class keynote MDs speaking for 2 hours each (David Perlmutter, Mark Hyman, and UCLA-Buck Institute’s Dale Bredesen—who reversed memory loss in 9 patients in a study published 9/14). Other speakers gave accounts of how they reversed their symptoms.

    Over 200 attended in person or online. To see what they saw, go to: HERE

    The Sharp Again Naturally team opened the conference by describing in layman’s terms a comprehensive, multi-causal, multi-therapeutic paradigm for dementia that explains why so many factors can make a difference for one person, but not another. All speakers agree:

    1. Don’t wait for symptoms to start testing and treating.
    2. Don’t give up without testing for and treating all reversible causes (currently 9 and counting).
    3. Keep treating until symptoms change.

    The On Demand live stream of the presentations is available til Oct 1, over 10 hours for only $49. I would have given anything for this info when my mother was in decline.

  60. Here's a great resource for those searching for ways to lift the spirits of those with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

    Please consider listing the Senior Radio Show on your site under "Activities", "Inspiration", "Mood", "Music/Movies", "Songs" and "Therapy". In short, it is an annual CD subscription that provides a professional solo piano rendition of many old, hard to find songs that are inspirational and uniquely fun for dementia patients, and even the elderly in general. The very special songs from their childhood, weddings, etc. Songs that aren't available anywhere else, at least not conveniently in one place.

    Here's the link - http://www.newfriendentertainment.com/radio-show.html

    Please let me know about the possibility of listing this resource and any related details that you might require.

    I feature this music in all kinds of care facilities, including dementia facilities and people do love it. Music does have the power to ease suffering, bring joy, and unlock the mind…as only music can.

    Recent thinking about Alzheimer’s and other forms of cognitive impairment suggests that attention to metabolic health and lifestyle factors can have value, especially for those in the early stage. I want to call your attention to this new program, called the RE:mind program, that utilizes a science-based, educational lifestyle approach created at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging that offers an alternative for those seeking other options.

  70. Hello Peter,
    I’m a nonprofit fundraising professional for the Validation Training Institute (VTI).

    VTI’s mission is to enrich the lives of older adults experiencing dementia and their caregivers through education and support that nurtures respect, dignity and well-being. At the heart of this is the Validation Method, a communication method that allows caregivers to better connect with these older adults.

    Small-scale studies have shown that the Validation Method reduces stress for caregivers while enhancing dignity and happiness for those who are Validated, people who are often 85+ years. Individuals at over 10,000 dementia care communities worldwide practice Validation.

    We are currently in the second half of our first fundraising/awareness campaign. It's called "I Validate to Connect" (#IValidate2Connect).

    Our goal: to raise $20,000 by Oct. 15 to help fund the largest Validation study ever undertaken. There are three ways to get involved.

  73. Hi Peter,

    Thanks so much for putting together such a fabulous site, with such a wealth of really good information.

    Like you, my Alzheimers journey sadly started from personal experience - with the slow decline and eventual loss of my Grandma who was very dear to me.

    Her struggle, however awful, did inspire me however and in the 12 years since we lost her, I have never lost my passion and my drive for raising awareness, fundraising and research into the conditon.

    Actually one of the things I do in order to raise awareness is to write my own Alzheimers related articles. I can provide you with links to some of my work if you wish and I wondered whether you'd like me to write anything for you?

    Look forward to hearing from you,

  80. Hello,
    My father has created a beautiful set of DVDs entitled Sunday Drive. Sunday Drive is a series of professional DVDs designed for people with Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism, brain injury and folks who may be homebound or residing in assisted living facilities and those who want to experience a meditative journey.

    Sunday Drive is set to cinematic background music and meant to relax the viewer. The DVDs intentionally contain no narrative, text, or plot. Their purpose is to mimic a classic rejuvenating drive or stroll through familiar surroundings.

    Sunday Drive is especially revitalizing for individual viewers with memory issues. The library of programs are particularly successful when watched with a group in a theater style setting encouraging conversation, interaction, and creating an overall positive communal experience.

    We are working to get these wonderful DVDs out into the world where they can be of as much help as possible. Please check us out at http://www.sunday-drive.info/

    Thank you for all that you do!

  82. Help! Does anyone know (have a link) where I can purchase a poster by John Wooden, green background, two people holding hands, text of: You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you. It's marked copyright alzheimersweekly.com but there's no "contact us" on this site at all...Thanks in advance - George from Edmonton

  83. Hi Peter. Your site is an excellent resource for people with dementia. I work for a premium weighing scales manufacturer - Marsden Weighing Group - and we have recently launched two new white scales specifically for dementia patients. I have a press release which I'd like to submit to you about them for use on your website. Please can you let me know an email address for me to send the information to?

    Kind regards,

  84. 2/7/2017 You featured a video today about a woman who was diagnosed mistakenly with Alzheimers because of the effects of medications she was taking. What were the drugs that caused the problem? Which drugs can cause Alzheimer's symptoms. The video wasn't very helpful without this information

  85. Myths of Arizona Eldercare.
    My hope is that our 29 year personal story about early onset dementia and neurosis will help others to understand the consequences of health care politics. It is being published in George Templeton’s column, in 2 week intervals, at http://rimcountrygazette.blogspot.com/
