San Antonio, Texas, November 1, 2007) Lightbridge Healthcare Research will now be able to assist the 10 million Americans caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease within the comfort of their own homes or offices. Their new CD-ROM series called Enlightened Alzheimer Caregiving empowers at-home caregivers with a greater understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and the changes expected with varying stages.
The first two CDs include Overview of Alzheimer’s Disease and Volume 1: Managing the Difficulties of Mealtime and are now available for preview and purchase at www.LightBridgeHealthcare.com. The CDs offer strategic tips and research-based information as well as personal interviews with caregivers and creative coping strategies. Funding from the National Institute of Health has enabled LightBridge Healthcare Research to develop these products which are affordable, easy-to-use, and available in English and Spanish.
Managing the Difficulties of Mealtime is the first volume in this series to turn your attention to behaviors related to a specific topic. From wandering and pacing to dehydration and constipation, this CD provides the viewer with an awareness of the diseases effects, as well as solutions on how to improve difficult situations a caregiver may encounter. Other features of the CDs include user-friendly navigation, interactive learning methods, encyclopedia-like glossary, frequently asked questions, search capabilities and so much more. In developing these caregiver training programs, LightBridge collaborated with leading academic researchers, clinical practitioners and national Universities including University of Maryland, University of Texas, University of Iowa, Duke University School of Nursing, and the University of New Mexico.
