Alzheimer's Disease in India discussion groups

Alzheimer's Disease in India through the Blog choose to develop its action in spreading information on Alzheimer's Disease and related disorders in India in the aim to raise awareness and bring information and guidance to Indian families. The LinkedIn group is open to trained professional caregivers but also to family caregivers having enough experience with older people affected to share it in the aim to dialogue, learn and give tips. The Facebook page is totally open to dialogue and comments on the links.

People wishing to help and participate to the various actions of NGOs would be directed as potential volunteers to Silver Inning Foundation based in Mumbai or ARDSI or Helpage India.

Alzheimer's Disease in India is now also on Karmayog forum for the same purposes : go to group directory section:
http://www.karmayog.in/groups/content/alzheimers-disease-india-0

As we just started, the groups are gathering few members from India and the USA mostly. I'd like to gather more people to make it more efficient. We all know someone who knows someone who is a specialist or who's taking/taken care of a patient in his/her family. I'd like them to know that there is a place where they can find information and support free of charge or on professional basis and in a elder friendly way.

If you know someone knowing people concerned by this issue, you may direct them to these groups.

Senior Citizens , Old Age Homes , Government , NGO's , Researchers and any one concern with Elders & Dementia/Alzheimer's can contact me.


Thanks.

This article discusses several ways to entertain people with Alzheimer's disease in the early and middle stages of the disease.

It is important for children to understand Alzheimer's disease so they can still interact lovingly with family members who have this disease. I am a 17 year old college junior, Alzheimer's researcher, and Alzheimer's advocate.I grew up as a caregiver to my great grandmother who had Alzheimer's disease. After her death, I founded a nonprofit organization that had distributed over 24,000 puzzles to Alzheimer's facilities. Recently, the book I coauthored explaining Alzheimer's disease to children became available on Amazon.My hope was to provide some helpful coping mechanisms to the many children dealing with Alzheimer's disease among their family members. 50 percent of the profits from this book will go to Alzheimer's causes. I think this book could help a lot of children and families. "Why Did Grandma Put Her Underwear in Refrigerator? A Book Explaining Alzheimer's Disease to Children."
