Wanna "fill your eyes with joyful tears?" Scroll down.

What happens is beyond words.

If your family is touched by dementia, this is something that will change your life and theirs.

This needs to be done in every nursing home and at home where family members are trying to take care of dementia and depressed parents.






Here is more information about the project:

Wow, what a remarkable improvement! A lot of people in nursing homes would live better if they were not so over medicated as well.

The facility found that they were able to reduce anti psychotic drugs over 50% and reduced the number of patients on the drugs from 37% to 13%.

Not only does the reduced drugs improve the quality of life for the patients, it also save a tremendous amount of money for insurance companies and medicare/medicaid because those drugs don't come cheap.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Amen! I'm really jazzed by this story and the iPod project although I don't have any family members who have Alzheimer's disease.

A MOVIE is coming out in July about this!! Maybe that will produce an explosion of interest.

Apparently there are 16,000 nursing homes in the US and many more worldwide. PLus there are the family's where the Alzheimer's victim is still at home. In the US there are 5 million people with Alzheimers and over 125 million victims worldwide with dementia.

I keep mentioning Alzheimer's but it's apparently helpful for dementia and a lot of other situations, such as depression, schizophrenia and so on.

I shared about it on Twitter and a nurse said she would be contacting the director of a nursing home where her father is. This could spread like wildfire to use a trite expression.

parts of the above paragraph are just plain "retarded"; a disservice to mankind a trivilization of a complex problem i.e, talkin' out of your ass.

i can not allow you to lump Alzheimers / dementia / depression / schizophrenia together.

first off... do you even know what is the cause of Alzheimers?????

competence factor >>>> a specific allele of ApoE protein [genetic factor]

plus.....

progression factor >>>>> chronic neurological inflammatory condition... such as herpes.

this is what i hate with are so-called thought-leaders that are on pharmeceutical industry
pay-roll...

the general ignorant [meaning untrained in the field] public is purposely told watered-down paradigms so that you the public can be fed black-magic chemicals

patents & revenue streams and marketing
