The Mayo Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center is one of 29 Alzheimer’s disease research centers across the country designated and funded by the National Institute on Aging of the National Institutes of Health. The purpose of the center is to provide care for dementia patients and promote research and education on Alzheimer’s Disease. The Mayo ADRC is organized into six cores:
  • Administrative Core The purpose of the Administrative Core is the oversee and coordinate all research activities of the Mayo ADRC. It facilitates new research projects on dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. Director: Ronald C. Petersen, PhD., M.D
  • Clinical and Research Support Core The purpose of the Clinical Core is to assess persons with memory and related complaints and persons of the same age and gender who have normal cognitive abilities. Patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias and normal volunteers are invited to participate in a variety of different research projects. The ADRC closely cooperates with the Alzheimer’s Disease Patient Registry which studies the changes in AD patients as they age. Normative information has been gathered on neuropsychological tests that has increased our Center’s ability in the early detection of dementia, including AD. It compares AD patients with normal subjects of the same age and sex and notes the changes in each over the years. Drug trials, risk factor analyses, patient management and prognosis research can also occur within this core.

6. ALZHEIMERS: Research,links,products
Diagnosis, treatment and useful products.
When my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 1990, I began collecting all the information I could about the disease and how to be a good caregiver...I read articles in journals,listened to experts,talked with other caregivers, and went to websites. I collected so much useful information about how to be a caregiver, that I decided to write a book about it...and,well,all that knowledge is found in our new book, called Alzheimer Solutions- A Personal Guide For Caregivers
Judith Harch,a journalist and medical editor, has been my trusty co-author on the book right from the start. She has done a wonderful job...sometimes I get a bit wordy, and she has made the book easy to read, no matter what the reader's expertise level. The user-friendly Question and Answer format shows you how to handle specific problems with scores of useful tips. The book is larger than normal,and the publisher chose a type size that is comfortable and easy to read for older caregivers.
The book shows caregivers how to recognize when they are under too much stress, and how to cope with it..The book lists many wonderful resources.
I thought you might be interested in looking at the Table of Contents...

Currently, there is an estimated 4 million Americans afflicted with Alzheimers Disease (AD).It is expected that more than 34 million people worldwide will develop Alzheimer?s disease by 2025 if an effective form of prevention and treatment are not found. The cost of caring for a person with AD is extremely high, an estimated $4.4 billion dollars per year is covered by the government, states cover an additional $4.1 billion per year. Most of the remaining costs fall on the patient and their family. If you think that Alzheimers won't affect you, perhaps you better think again. We are an aging society and the prevalence of the disease is increasing dramatically. Doctors now look at people between the ages of 30-50 and see the next generation of AD suffers. Could that be you, your mom, dad, sister, brother? If anyone had of told me in 1987, that in just a few years I would become my mothers full-time caregiver because of Alzheimers I would not have believed them. You see, my mother graduated from our local college, at the age of 72, June, 1987, the oldest person ever. She received her AA and a standing ovation from her class. Yet, just a few years later the signs of AD began to rear their ugly heads. The forgetfulness, agitation, distraction, confusion etc...

    Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is one of a small group of fatal diseases caused by infectious agents called prions. These attack the brain, killing cells and creating gaps in tissue. The brain takes on a characteristic sponge-like appearance. Early symptoms include memory problems, mood changes and lack of co-ordination. The disease progresses to shakiness and dementia. Those affected are eventually unable to move or speak. The CJD Support Network is the only registered charity providing help and support for people with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, their carers and concerned professionals. Founded in 1994 by relatives of people with CJD, with the help of the Alzheimer's Society and other professionals, the aims of the Network include:

    hig logo,

    More than 4 million people in the U.S. are afflicted with dementia, with Alzheimer's Disease being the most com mon form. Deciding when to limit or stop driving can be a confusing issue for individuals diagnosed with dementia and their caregivers. Earlier diagnosis and better medications may allow people to drive longer, further complicating the decision. Most information about dementia warns against driving, but does not describe when or how to stop. The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc., the MIT Age Lab and Connecticut Community Care, Inc., have developed a guide to Alzheimer's Disease, Dementia and Driving as a tool to help individuals and caregivers determine when it is time to stop driving.
