Read Our Dementia Daily Blog:
Read our latest blog posts as we update you on all the latest findings on how dementia works. As we learn more about how dementia works, we can treat it better and–hopefully one day–cure it at a 100% success rate. Our greatest goal with this website is that dementia becomes so understood that this website is no longer needed. Like an old medical journal describing how to care for smallpox patients, we hope that this website becomes antiquated once our journey is complete.

It’s a wonderful way to provide dignity to those suffering from this disease:
Discounted Travel to visit Affected Relatives
Nobody can foresee when a relative or friend might suddenly be affected by dementia, and it’s even harder if they are far away. To make it a little easier, we have found some last-minute discount rates that might make it possible for you to visit with them. You can also use a voucher for your car hire, the last thing you need to be worrying about is finances at a time like this.
Resources for Care Facility Administrators
