Dementia Map Global Resource Directory – Connecting Families & Professionals to Services, Products, Tools, & Events

Monday April 25th – 2pm EST, 1pm CST, 12pm MST, 11am PST & 7pm London GMT, 9pm South Africa SAST, and on the April 26th at 6am in Australia AEDT

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.
