Caring for the Patient With Alzheimer’s

In a recent New York Times story,“Giving Alzheimer’s Patients Their Way, Even Chocolate,” I looked at caregiving for people with Alzheimer’s disease and described how scientists and researchers are studying approaches to caregiving that appear to ease some of the most troubling symptoms, like wandering or agitated and aggressive behavior. Certain approaches to caregiving can make life more pleasant for patients, who, research suggests, continue to feel emotions like joy or sadness even if they have no memory of the experiences that caused those emotions. And they can, in turn, make things easier for caregivers, allowing people to care for relatives with Alzheimer’s at home and delay placing them in nursing homes.

In the coming months, issues involving caregiving may be considered for inclusion in a national strategic plan on Alzheimer’s. The plan is part of the National Alzheimer’s Project Act, just passed by Congress and expected to be signed by President Obama. The act would create an advisory council of representatives from all the federal agencies concerned with health, science and aging, and the council would devise a coordinated national plan to ”accelerate the development of treatments that would prevent, halt or reverse the course of Alzheimer’s” and ”improve the early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and coordination of the care and treatment of citizens with Alzheimer’s.”

What kinds of concerns about caregiving in both institutional and home settings do you think a federal advisory panel should focus on?
