PBS documentary on Alzheimer’s disease is an urgent wake-up call

The Alzheimer’s Association is proud to serve as national partner for the PBS documentary “Alzheimer’s: Every Minute Counts,” which premieres Jan. 25 at 10 p.m. ET. Highlighting the financial and social implications of Alzheimer's, the one-hour program is an urgent wake-up call about the national threat posed by the disease. The Association has a presence in the documentary, including segments featuring our 24/7 Helpline and staff and an interview with Matthew Baumgart, senior director, Public Policy.

Focusing on Alzheimer's

 

 

 

In an effort to provide information and generate awareness for people in the area affected by Alzheimer's disease, Vivian Green Korner recently held Cresskill Alzheimer's Awareness Week. Korner organized the campaign, which ran from Nov. 17 to 22, "so people can learn how to manage the illness and get connected to other caregivers and to be supported."

Korner, a certified dementia care practitioner from Demarest, wanted to inform the public as to how those who have the condition, as well as their caregivers, can better care for themselves.

As stated in today's issue of the Wall Street Journal by 2020 (only 7 years from now) the US will need more paid caregivers than police officers. This is good news for your business.

 

 
This statistics are in the article  "Expanding Care For Older Adults". The article addresses the need for quality training stating that paid caregivers often receive very little training and support to care for individual's with dementia. The hope is "that with more services, training, and better resources people will be better cared for, the service delivery will be stronger and higher quality and the jobs will be sustainable, living wage and meaningful jobs". 
 
 There is currently a need for 4 million in-home paid caregivers for older adults. 
 
Alzheimer's disease and related forms of dementia are on a steady and fast increase.The diseases are progressive and the care required is extremely demanding.  The training programs I offer are tailored specifically to give your paid caregivers the tools and support to offer quality care and increase job satisfaction throughout the stages of the disease.  Ongoing training is essential to meet the demand.
