Changing Perspectives about Alzheimers
Patients, Care & Caregiver
When you change your perspective, it expands your ability to give support to people, rather than acting from frustrated energy, or trying to change someone. The energy you bring to the day affects you, him or her, and those around everyone.
Tryn Rose will share how you can create the place in yourself where you can give respectful, generous energy and attention to another. It benefits everyone.

We sat on a bench in the garden of the home my mother lives in, enjoying the day. At a certain point of the conversation she called me “mom.” I looked at her somewhat surprised and somewhat amused and said: “Let’s see, who is the mom here and who the daughter?” She then looked me straight in the eyes and with lucidity she had not showed in a long while, she said: “We are both the mother and the daughter.”In that moment I became aware that there might be a new way for me to face the progressive loss of my mother caused by the dementia from which she suffers. What if I stopped looking upon her disease as a loss and started looking at it as an opportunity for creating a new relationship with her? Not only was she becoming my child, also something different and deeply profound was now possible between us. I did not know exactly what that was but I knew it was worth finding out.

Have your Alzheimer's disease questions answered on-air by geriatric neuropsychiatrist and Alzheimer’s specialist, William A Van Horn, MD.
A MESSAGE FROM DR. VAN HORN Thank you for the opportunity to help you and your family.
As Medical Director of both an inpatient and outpatient Alzheimer's treatment program, I had the opportunity to work with hundreds of Alzheimer's patients and families.
Unwilling to accept the traditional medical position that little could be done to impact this debilitating disease, I spent the last ?ve years exploring and prescribing different medication protocols.
My efforts have been very successful. My patients are doing far better than the norm and are bene?ting in ways I did not realize were possible. My approach is unique and aggressive while also being safe and well within medical standards. It is exciting to see my Alzheimer's patients doing much better than expected at all stages of the disease. My desire is to share my treatment success with physicians and families.-William A. Van Horn, MD
