Are you feeling like you don't have much to offer caregivers, families and patients/clients struggling with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias? Dementia Connection™ wants to increase your dementia and Alzheimer's disease knowledge! And then to take action! We want you to assess, manage, educate and support dementia victims and their families using the latest research and clinical guidelines. YOU are needed for this: as there is a rapidly-growing critical shortage of geriatric and memory specialists.
Susan Scanland has practiced dementia care for 30 years and presented in 40 states to geriatric nurses, consultant pharmacists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, neurologists, social workers and other gerontological multidisciplinary professionals.
Dementia Connection™ would like to offer you the latest research on Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, Parkinson's disease dementia and lewy body dementia, as well as dementia prevention. Our newsletter for nurses, physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other geriatric professionals, the Dementia Connection E-Newsletter™ is in its third year of electronic publication, reaching nearly 10,000 health professionals across the world.
Our Dementia Connection E-Newsletter™ reviews Alzheimer's and dementia, geropsychiatric medical, geriatric pharmacology and gerontological nursing journals, offering the latest abstracts of new research. Your privacy is maintained, as we do not release or rent data bases. Easily sign up in the second post-it note from the right upper top of this page.
We encourage you to share our website:
www.dementiaconnection.com with your clients and caregivers dealing with Alzheimer's disease or atypical dementia. For families on the web, we have a Dementia Connection Blog™ where concerns, feelings and questions can be posted.
Our Dementia Connection Blog™ covers both Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Plan to read and post to our blog regularly. Sharing your clinical experience and caring attitude has the power to decrease other bloggers' caregiver stress, anxiety, depression, to improve work-life balance and to help other professionals treating elders.
I, as one health care provider, cannot do this alone. Your caring and help is needed more than you can ever imagine. I encourage you to do the following:
- Sign up for our FREE monthly e-newsletter, Dementia Connection E-Newsletter™. You will receive one email to click on for confirmation. Less than 3% of our readers unsubscribe! Simply sign up in the second post-it note from the right upper top of this page.
- Give your caregivers the dementiaconnection.com website upon diagnosis or in the early stages of Alzheimer's and other dementias, as well as throughout the middle and late stages of Alzheimer's and other dementias.
