AIRMA helps people cope with Alzheimer's

17.01.2007
To coincide with Alzheimer’s disease being named a National Cause for 2007 in France, Association Internationale sur la Recherche pour la Maladie d'Alzheimer (AIRMA) has developed a new booklet to help increase public awareness about the disease and to provide useful information to caregivers and medical professionals.

The information-packed booklet, titled Learn More, Cope Better: What You Need To Know About Alzheimer’s, is an eight-chapter resource guide that is being made available free to AIRMA donors, the health and medical communities as well as the general public.

“Learn More, Cope Better: What You Need To Know About Alzheimer’s is a message of support to families touched by Alzheimer's disease,” said AIRMA Chairwoman Janet Michaels. “Alzheimer’s is an extremely difficult disease to deal with from diagnosis to death. By providing this useful resource, AIRMA is helping to make caring for an Alzheimer’s patient as easy as possible for caregivers and the medical community.”

The booklet features useful answers to questions about diagnosis, treatment and many other common issues faced by patients and caregivers affected by Alzheimer’s disease. It also provides concise information regarding Alzheimer's symptoms, stages, risk factors, caregiver information and government resources, among other topics.

Additionally, Learn More, Cope Better: What You Need To Know About Alzheimer’s provides many useful tips to make homes safer for patients and includes numerous examples of stimulating activities to engage Alzheimer’s patients.

To receive a free copy, contact AIRMA at 01-44-88-16-35 or by e-mail at info@airma.org. The brochure is downloadable, free of charge, on the AIRMA Web site at www.airma.org (click on the “Resources” section).

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
