Kopfmigranten / Pubilcation about Alzheimer's Disease

Kopfmigranten
Kopfmigranten

When it comes to Alzheimer's Disease, fears of contact play a major role. The basic concept of this theoretical bridging of symptoms and different culture areas, allows greater insight and understanding into the life of
an affected individual than abstract textual information found in guidebooks. This is particularly important to family members, non-affected persons and young people. If one compares the mood swings of an Alzheimer's patient with the emotional roller coaster of a football match, the patient's cognitive deficits become less terrifying for all involved persons and the focus can be placed on the aspects of living together again.
