World Alzheimer’s Day – Tips, Tricks and Research

Well I missed getting this posted yesterday to chime in with people around the world recognizing this important day, due to computer issues… but I’m back up and running now. I also understand one day doesn’t do dementia justice and that is exactly way I started Alzheimer’s Speaks in the first place. Our goal here is to raise all voices to lift great ideas and concerns regarding living with dementia. To help families and professionals connect to wonderful services, products, tools, tips and research to live graciously along side dementia.

I firmly believed than and still do today that if we are going to find solutions, support and a cure we must talk about dementia in all forms on a regular basis without feeling uncomfortable.

For thirty years my own Mother battled Alzheimer’s Disease. She passed on five years and during our families experience no one was talking about Alzheimer’s diseas or other froms of dementia. So, as a family we didn’t either. I know now that was a mistake and am so happy to see so many others joining the voice of dementia.

The first ten years, starting in 1984, she was misdiagnosed and was told it was menopause. My Mother always knew it was that.

Did you know getting a proper diagnosis is a common problem still today?

It’s common for many doctors to not be as educated as we all think. This is something that needs to change. By all of us raising our concern for a better diagnostic process along with supportive information on where to get help and resources is critical. We have done it for Cancer, Heart Disease, HIV and Diabetes, so we can do it for dementia too!

Below are a bunch of great resources, research and support I want to share with you.

Alzheimer’s Disease International does a great job each year pulling together an amazing global report with fascinating information. This years report covers Attitudes to Dementia.

Here are just a few highlights from the 160 page report.

Almost 80% of the general public are concerned about developing dementia at some point and 1 in 4 people think that there is nothing we can do to prevent dementia

35% of carers across the world said that they have hidden the diagnosis of dementia of a family member

Over 50% of carers globally say their health has suffered as a result of their caring responsibilities even whilst expressing positive sentiments about their role

Almost 62% of healthcare providers worldwide think that dementia is part of normal aging

40% of the general public think doctors and nurses ignore people with dementia

This video is loaded with great tips for living with dementia from John Gross and Lori La Bey

The Silent Killer – Poem by Gwen Barnes

I dreamt about my mum today

a cruel disease took her away

it crept up upon her from behind

and slowly crushed synapses in her mind

I watched it happen

I couldn’t fight

I was powerless, as she was

in it’s might

I sometimes hear the latest news

the scientists have made

the next breakthrough

but this killer is still at large

it’s appetite is on turbocharge

its killing millions in it’s wake

it must be stopped

for humanity’s sake

So all I can do is hope and pray

that it doesn’t get me one day

there’s evidence to suggest it will

by then there may well be a pill

to cure this dreaded predator of the brain

to let old age have it’s longest reign

to enjoy this life, to be fit and well

until it’s time to bid my last farewell.

By Gwen Barnes

(in loving memory of my mum who passed away with Alzheimer’s in 2016)
