What Activities Can People with Dementia Do? Tune In to Hear MindStart on Alzheimer's Speaks Radio   By PRWEB

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) October 30, 2012

5.4 million Americans are living with Alzheimers disease or other forms of dementia and over 15 million family members or friends serve as caregivers (Alzheimers Association Facts and Figures 2012). These families have many struggles along the way as this condition takes away abilities of the person to do everyday things, to speak, and to remember.

On Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 10:00am CST, MindStart owner, Monica Heltemes, OTR/L, will be broadcasting live with Alzheimers Speaks Radio founder and host, Lori La Bey, on the topic Staying Active with Dementia to help caregivers understand how they can help.

Alzheimers Speaks Radio was founded in 2011 to give help and hope to those affected by memory loss, which can include: the person; care partners, both family and professional; researchers; and advocates. The radio show shares the stories and experiences of these people to answer questions, remove stigmas, and raise awareness about dementia.
