Dementia Information

Wednesday, November 29, 2006



Eisai and Pfizer, Inc. have recently received FDA approval for Aricept's use in late stage (severe) Alzheimer's disease. This is a pretty important move since Aricept is the number one prescribed drug in the treatment of Alzheimer's. Check out more information about it at http://www.aricept.com. Of course, there are some people who cannot tolerate this drug, and if that's the case with your loved one, I would encourage you to try Exelon or Razadyne. I would also encourage you to consider adding Namenda to the Aricept since it's been shown to be very effective at helping preserve cognitive abilities for a longer period of time. Please remember that it's always a "guessing game" when it comes to using drugs in people with dementia. Your physician should always start doses out low and increase very slowly to accurately observe any side effects.



I'm in the process of having some big changes made to my website in order to make it more user-friendly, and efficient. Thank you to everyone who has taken a moment to contact me and let me know how I've been able to help you--that means a lot to me and that's why I'm in this business! Stay in touch and keep the comments coming. Cindy



I'm proud to announce that my staff training video (BRINGING NURTURING TO MEMORY CARE), is completed and can be purchased by contacting me by e-mail (keithc@mindinmemorycare.com) or by phone (814-235-0691). Feedback has been very positive! I accept VISA, Mastercard, money order or business check and I am willing to consider a payment plan to make it easier for you to access this valuable training source. The introductory cost is $400.00 plus $6.00 S & H (PA residents must pay 6% sales tax). It consists of 2 DVD's, runs 2 hours and 28 minutes and includes a written test--so easily amounts to a 3 hour training. Just think of how many of your staff can benefit from this easily accessible training source! Your biggest benefit will come from the increased comfort your staff will feel when working with this challenging population, as well as less agitation and aggression from your residents with dementia. Please check out the information contained in the Outline listed below on this blog.
