For All Points-Of-The-View.
Hi theblacklist, That's me, my brother and my mum before she past away :(
We aim to run a series of awareness campaigns to help members of the African and Caribbean Community get a better understanding of dementia and any related illnesses, learn more about early warning signs, remove the stigma of having Alzheimer Disease and encourage our elders to go for regular check ups, diagnoses and how to cope and ensure a quality of life for the affected loved one.
Culture plays a big role in the escalation of Alzheimer's especially for people from BME communities and is crucial toward helping the individual feel comfortable, familiar and safe and can help reduce the rate of decline for the individual.
We aim to setup, promote and assist existing African and Caribbean Culturally sensitive day centres, family day outs and activities to keep our elders mentally stimulated across the UK, along with this we will develop Memory Cafes and sing for the brain programs to help improve the lives of anyone who is suffering from early stage dementia and their carers.
We aim to encourage relevant Caribbean Restaurants to introduce a Meals on Wheels service to help people who are not well enough to cook for themselves or carers who are unable to cook the type of food that the person they are caring for may expect or is use to.
We are asking for your support by way of a donation small or large towards our target to help us to put in place and run a support network for people suffering from Dementia, Alzheimer's and/or any other related illness, you can kindly make a donation on our gofundme website https://www.gofundme.com/pearlsupport
We are also looking at developing culturally sensitive products for people with dementia which we hope will also be used by care homes and day centres as part of their daily activities for dementia sufferers.
Thank you and take care
It is a very worthy endeavor that you are carrying out, but I have help for Alzheimer's (dementia) patients right in my work. See
http://www.truedemocracy.net/td14/22.html This is the last entry on this page. This is my Did You Know? feature.
Not in my work, but valuable:
This aforementioned link should say that one should never cook in aluminium (aluminum in American English) as this metal may cause Alzheimer's.
To access the rest of my work, click on the icon that says Magazine.
African Americans are twice as likely to suffer from Alzheimer's than white people.
And, in Britain, there are an estimated 25,000 Black people with Alzheimer's. This figure is expected to rise to 50,000 by 2026.
However, with SRT (Spiritual Response Therapy), we routinely clear people of Alzheime'rs and dementia. For more info, see: Freedom from Alzheimer's and Dementia.
You are doing a great job in raising awareness around this issue. I salute you for this.
