Alzheimer Research Forum Home

alzhiemers research foundationThe Alzheimer Research Forum Home is a one stop site for those who have to deal with the awful experience of alzheimers.  What can a person or a family do?  First step:  knowledge is indeed power.

This site definitely has a lot of knowledge  inside its’ boundaries.  There are lots of news, research and discussion about Alzheimer’s and ways to go about treating it [mostly be it at a professional/researcher stance] and dealing with the issues at hand.  Discuss possible issues with other members by becoming a member and leaving a comment.  Best of all, become a better informed Alzheimer’s caregiver or researcher.

Knowledge is indeed power, and to those who have Alzheimer’s–some of their memory has disappeared–let’s increase ours and fight this insidious disease.

Birth Psychology (APPPAH)

birth psychologyThe Association for Prenatal & Perinatal Psychology and Health (APPPAH) helps benefit pregnant women and the overall general community by helping to expound on the field of birth psychology.

There is nothing sweeter than seeing a newborn baby and holding it and loving it.  It is very important to understand (and is becoming more apparent) that babies understand many things going on around them, even inside their mothers’ womb.  Babies can hear the music their parents listen to and kick, or parents can read a story and the baby will hear the story.  We are finally understanding this as well as psychologists and as adults.

The Association for Prenatal & Perinatal Psychology and Health has many different ways for us to understand babies and ourselves better.  There are journals, newsletters, articles, books and recordings.  There are many different stories in the news for people who are interested to read and finally, there are directories and conferences with APPPAH members.  For 25 years, the APPPAH has been working towards helping babies and their families understand each other and the world.
