SIX REASONS TO PARTECIPATE
AT THE EVENT and MAKE A DONATION
A reception will conclude the event.
The research program intends to test the Dementia Diary (DD) a psyco-educational support, elaborated in 2008 in New York by Gianni Perilli, Italian sociologist Ph. D.
The DD counts more than 800 suggestions which can be offered by a customized list to family caregivers of patient with AD or other dementia, after an interview with them. The DD helps both family caregivers and patients to better live at home.
The Dementia Diary has three main goals:
1) To reduce the incidence of tumors, stroke and depression associated with family caregivers over the period of taking care of an AD patient (from 8 to 20 years)
2) To increase patient’s safety at home
3) To reduce healthcare costs associated with the care of AD patients and family caregivers.
Testing the Dementia Diary will involve free assistance to family caregivers in New York. We are currently testing the DD in Italy at “School of Medicine” of Bari.
