Watch the Video Interview Below

Today’s show is going to be a bit different. After Lori La Bey introduces her guests, she will be passing her role as interviewer over to Eilon Caspi, as we dive into Dementia Map Global Resource Directory.

Eilon Caspi is a colleague and friend whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years. Eilon is a Gerontologist & an Assistant Research Professor at the University of Connecticut.  He also has cofacilitated Dementia chats with me for years.  Eilon recently published a wonderful book called the Understanding and Preventing Harmful Interactions Between Residents with Dementia. 

Dave Wiederrich and I, our cofounders of Dementia Map.  In addition, he is also the founder and operator of Memory Cafe Directory, which he started in 2016 when he realized how difficult it was to locate on. Memory Cafe Directory now has over 1,000 listings in five countries.

For anyone who is new to Alzheimer’s Speaks here is a brief background on Loir La Bey.  Her Mother lived with dementia for 30 years and this journey changed both their lives. Like many Lori was a frustrated daughter looking for services, products, tools and support and she found very little. So, Lori decided to do something about it and in 2009, started Alzheimer’s Speaks an advocacy group and media outlet making an international impact providing education and support for those dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Dementia and the Arts is an Educational Panel where all levels of artists and all types are welcome. Our goal is to elevate panelists work and ability to create beauty in many forms. They will share examples of various types of art they participate in, how, and why they started, what they have learned, and what they personally get out of making art. Panelists, do not have to attend all sessions.

As you will see from the sample video above, conversations are comfortable, casual, and fascinating. We have so much to learn from one another. All recordings will be prerecorded and published to Alzheimer’s Speaks YouTube channel with a specific playlist channel for easy access. Each episode will be pushed out on Alzheimer’s Speaks social media channels as well.

Eilon Caspi picTwo years ago in April, Eilon Caspi, a Gerontologist & Dementia Behavior Specialist, launched a blog called: The Center for Prevention of Aggression Between Residents with Dementia.   Since then he has posted over 500 free resources on the center. The goal of the center is to raise awareness and improve understanding regarding the root causes of prevalent but under-recognized behaviors.  In addition, it is his hope that with this information people will be able to apply strategies which could help prevent and de-escalate unwanted reactions, we like to label “behaviors.

Eilon also helps out on “Dementia Chats,” a webinar Alzheimer’s Speaks provides FREE of charge to those who want to ask questions and have a discuss with our panel of experts who are diagnosed and living with dementia.  The webinars are on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from  3pm to 4pm EST, 2pm to 3pm CST, 1pm to 2pm MST, 12pm to 1pm PST.  For more information on Dementia Chats CLICK HERETo go directly to the webinar, when live Click Here.
