    Just passing on a link that someone sent to me today - Interesting Article in New York Times:

    Zen and the Art of Coping With Alzheimer's. I think it really highlights the frustration at the current progress with research (on both sides of the big pond).

    http://health.nytimes.com/ref/health/healthguide/esn-alzheimers-ess.html

    Also an interesting FAQ:

    http://health.nytimes.com/ref/health/healthguide/esn-alzheimers-qa.html

    There are also some links to videos on the left side of the page.

    Kind Regards
    Craig

    Some people may also be interested in a slide show clickable on the same site.

    This depicts self portaits of the artist William Utermohlen, which he painted as his dementia progressed.

    They are utterly compelling, honest and beautiful, though very sad.

    I imagine many of us have witnessed similar changes in loved ones, and have photographs which attest to the cruelty of disease progression, but here we have the person himself telling us what the experience is like.

    Incredible.
