    Alzheimer’s Society launches physical activity and family carer guides

    18.02.19 Alzheimer’s Society has teamed up with Sport England to produce a dementia-friendly sport and physical activity guide. It is intended for personal trainers, coaches and others involved in leisure centres, sports clubs and gyms, showing them how to help people with dementia lead active lives and remain independent for as long as possible. The guide may also be useful for physiotherapists and occupational therapists. Sport England and Alzheimer’s Society are calling on the sports sector to dismantle the barriers preventing people affected by dementia from engaging in physical activities. The free guide is available HERE

    Alzheimer's map provides 'huge opportunity' for researchers

    15.02.19 A dataset described as the “biggest ever map” of the human Alzheimer’s brain has been produced by a research team led by Manchester University. It maps the relative levels of over 5,825 distinct proteins across six regions of the brain, showing how they vary from levels in the normal brain. Dr Richard Unwin said: “The database provides a huge opportunity for dementia researchers around the world to progress and to follow up new areas of biology and develop new treatments. Alzheimer’s disease arises in the hippocampus and spreads through pathways in the brain. By looking at different parts of that pathway, the team were able to observe for the first time how Alzheimer’s progresses in more detail.” More info HERE
