- Tools and resources address five key components of early-stage Alzheimer's -

- Series designed with input from people living with the disease -

CHICAGO, March 16, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Alzheimer's Association announced today new online resources to help those in the early stage of Alzheimer's disease or other dementias to live well. The Association's new "LiveWell" resources offer interactive tools, including video insights from those living with the disease, to help users navigate the personal and emotional challenges that accompany an Alzheimer's diagnosis.

Currently, there are an estimated 5.5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's. Following diagnosis, it is not uncommon for individuals to feel disconnected, isolated or abandoned by others. Denial and fear of what will happen as the disease progresses can prevent many individuals from facing their diagnosis. As a result, there is often a delay in planning for the future, accessing potential treatments and individuals may miss out on resources and support services that can help them live a positive and fulfilling life in the early stage.

"LiveWell resources and activities help those living in the early stage confront disease-related challenges by providing personal insights and strategies on how to live a quality life with dementia for as long as possible," said Monica Moreno, director, early-stage initiatives, Alzheimer's Association. "We hope that by hearing from others living with the disease, users will begin to embrace the notion that there is life after a diagnosis and use the LiveWell tools to gain a sense of control over their lives."

The LiveWell series features five distinct resources addressing issues relevant to the early-stage experience. Several include interactive activities that allow users to enter customized responses and generate a personalized summary detailing the steps they can take to live well. Each activity was created with input from people living in the early stage of dementia. The five resources include:


  • Life After Diagnosis:
    • The adjustment to a "new normal" after the diagnosis of Alzheimer's or another dementia is often a period with difficult emotions and uncertainty about the future. This module contains video reflection from individuals living in the early stage who recount the emotions they experienced after receiving their diagnosis and the process they went through to accept it. 
  • You Are More Than Your Diagnosis
    • A diagnosis and the accompanying losses may impact how an individual sees themselves. This module contains an activity that encourages individuals living in the early stage of dementia to explore unique aspects of their identity. A personalized word cloud is generated from their responses with "Living with dementia" appearing alongside customized entries to demonstrate that the individual is not defined by their diagnosis. Individuals can download and share the image of the word cloud. 
  • Live Healthy
    • Understanding how to live a healthy and balanced life with dementia is often a challenge for individuals in the early stage of the disease. This module contains an activity to empower those living with dementia to choose how to live well in their daily lives. Individuals receive a personalized plan that can be shared with others to start a conversation about how they would like to approach living a healthy and balanced life.
  • Maximize Your Independence
    • Living with dementia may present daily challenges that cause a person to focus on their losses rather than their strengths and the support available to them. This module contains an activity that encourages individuals living in the early stage of dementia to consider strategies to live a quality life and identify how others may be able to help them with day-to-day activities both now and in the future. Individuals receive a personal plan based on their responses that can be shared with others to start a conversation about how they may be able to help maximize independence.
  • Live in the Moment
    • It can be difficult to be positive when facing the daily challenges of dementia. This module contains videos featuring individuals living in the early stage of dementia sharing their perspectives on how the diagnosis changed their outlook on life and taught them the importance of living in the moment.
"These resources address important issues that can help individuals living in the early stage of the disease identify what's important and how they can move forward," Moreno said. "We encourage individuals living with the disease to use these resources to begin conversations with their care partners about how they can help them to live as well as possible for as long as possible. Engaging in these materials together encourages conversation and can provide a common direction in a life that inevitably changes after a diagnosis." 

The LiveWell materials were developed with funding from the Cigna Foundation World of Difference Grant. Learn how to live well with dementia in the early stage at alz.org/livewell.
