EXPANDING THE BATTLE AGAINST DEMENTIA
Increasingly, a vast number of individuals will fall victim to the ravages
of various dementias. Significant efforts have been made by organizations
and governmental and non-governmental groups around
the world to develop methods of dealing with the causes of dementia.
It is vitally important to maximize public awareness of the resources
available for prevention, treatment, and care and to deliver timely and
accurate information as to the availability and usefulness of these resources,
with the emphasis currently on the Omaha-Metropolitan area.
We have committed to work with many diverse individuals and organizations
who are involved in providing assistance in dealing with
the tragic consequences of dementia.
The mission of the Consortium of Dementia Alternatives
(CDA) is to assist individuals and groups to gain information
on senior care strategies, research findings and advocacy initiatives.
Through links with our partners, we provide direction to find updates on
senior programs, partners and events. This website provides general information about senior care issues and does not
take the place of professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. If you have
noticed possible symptoms of age related disease in yourself or someone else, please see a doctor.
Now what? Many families facing memory issues ask themselves this daily. Not knowing where
to go or what to do can be challenging for caregivers. The NET Television series Now What?,
co-produced with the Consortium of Dementia Alternatives, will help to identify memory issues
in the elderly and work toward finding solutions to the problems families encounter every day.
