What Do You Know About The the Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry?

What Do You Know About The Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry?

If you are like me you might not have been aware of all this organization does.  Years ago I thought the Alzheimer’s Association was the only resource for those dealing with dementia.  Now days, they are many different organizations offering assistance in different areas.

The Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry is part of the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute which is one of those many organizations providing multiple resources for those in need.

alz_prev_registry_logoDid you know researchers have to screen 10 to 15 times the number of people they actually need for a study?  I didn’t.

Research is critical if we are going to find a cure for dementia.  Check out the Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry to get more information on how you or someone you know could get involved.

The Banner institute also offers a new standard of care, when caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s.  They have tons of wonderful information along with great caregiver classes:

COMPASS (Caregivers Of Memory impaired Persons Acquiring Successful Strategies)

MAPS (Memory Assistance and Planning Session) for Caregivers

Planning Ahead Classes

The Banner Alzheimer’s Institute is also involved with international scientific collaborations.
