Alzheimer's and Dementia Care Around the World


This fascinating article describes how families are sending persons living with Alzheimer's and dementia to far off place like Thailand to receive memory care.

The reason? The care is better and far cheaper.

A must read and share for the entire Alzheimer's and dementia community world wide.


Tea Rooms for Persons Living with Dementia

Compassion, engagement, socialization, and Alzheimer's communication. This wonderful idea is being utilized by Runwood Homes Senior Living in the UK. A better idea than a Memory Cafe or a variation on a theme.

This is how you foster quality dementia environments and get everyone involved.

Did I ever tell you Dotty was part English? She would have loved this idea.

Married to Alzheimer’s: How much would I give to still be a wife and not increasingly a carer?
"It is only when those moments are slipping away we realise how precious they are. How much they are the glue that binds any partnership together. How much would I give to keep them and still be a wife and not increasingly a carer?"
Does this remind you of anyone. Heart warming and gut wrenching.

Certainly worth reading and contemplating.
