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: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
