Therapeutic Interventions for The Support of Those with Alzheimer's Disease
KA2 – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices.
Strategic Partnerships for adult education
Background of the Project:
European countries are increasingly becoming ageing societies and as such the potential for social isolation increases. In two thirds of European countries, over 1 in 10 persons over 65 either have no friends or do not socialise with their friends at all. Alzheimer’s disease is a physical disease that affects the brain. The symptoms caused include memory loss, anxiety and difficulty thinking. It is a progressive disease and so gets worse over time. Globally, nearly 44 million people have Alzheimer’s disease and the largest numbers are found in Western Europe.
We have applied for a partnership so that the results have the ability to support a large network care homes, carers and families across Europe. At a local level this will mean there will be more Alzheimer suffers receiving complementary therapies.
Share knowledge of complementary therapy types and benefits for the cognitive improvement and relaxation of those suffering with Alzheimer’s disease and/or its symptoms.
Develop a bank of resources and references for carers and support staff to refer to and use.
Create a forum for carers and support staff to share ideas, challenges and outcomes of complementary therapies.
