Regularly in the top 10 posts read by our Spanish readers, “Show your purple for Alzheimer’s disease” discusses and defines dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, discusses dementia and people with disabilities growing older, and research from the NIDILRR community and beyond. Since we first published “Show your purple for Alzheimer’s disease” in June 2017, we’ve added a host of new articles on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in NARIC’s collection, including NIDILRR-funded and international research articles. We’ve also connected with organizations around the world that assist people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and their families that include Alzheimer’s Disease International, the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer Europe, Alzheimer CEAFA in Spain, and Coprad in Chile. With the arrival of spring rains and summer storm season just around the corner we also took a look at emergency preparedness information and resources for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers from the National Institute on Aging (NIA).
Our friends at AbleData have also added some reading for you on assistive technology for Alzheimer’s disease.
