The Alzheimer’s Experience
Currently there are 5.8 million suffering from Alzheimer’s in the United States. This number is predicted to rise to 14 million by 2050. Couple with that the fact it is rare those with middle to late stage Alzheimer’s receive dental care of any kind and it is a recipe for disaster. In fact, there is a disaster today, within the halls and rooms of locked dementia units across the US and the world is oblivious. This course will take the attendees on an Alzheimer’s journey. It is imperative the dental team and other professionals understand how to care for those with cognitive issues and realize what it is like to be affected by this disease. Recognizing the signs that things are changing for our elders is key. Shoring up dental health before the disease advances is necessary. Decisions on how oral health will be maintained when the elder is no longer able to care for their own mouth need to be made early and need to be implemented quickly when the time is right. Few receive this kind of care.
What If They Are Wrong and We Can Stave Off Alzheimer’s
A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s in the 21st century should not be synonymous with a drawn-out awful death, and it is. The first diagnosis regarding brain changes is Mild Cognitive Impairment. Patients are told there is no treatment and there will likely be a progression to Alzheimer’s Disease, which also cannot be halted. A “Get your affairs in order” attitude is the norm. But, what if they are wrong? This course will provide hope for attendees, their loved ones and their patients in the realm of Alzheimer’s Prevention and Brain Preservation. New research regarding prevention strategies will be presented. Hands on activities will also be included.
A Dementia Friendly
As humans are living longer than ever before, changes in the brain are becoming more prevalent among elders. A few decades ago, these changes led to a diagnosis of senility and a life confined to a “county home” for most. Today brain changes are better understood than in the past and society is learning to work with individuals who are living with a diagnosis of some type of dementia. This trend has dental and medical professionals caring for patients they may not be prepared to serve. Likewise, other businesses are serving customers who have dementia. This presentation will walk attendees through numerous aspects of care and serving people with dementia in the hopes of having the best care and service outcomes.

Dying from Dirty Teeth, by Angie Stone
Angie’s passion for elders began when her mother in law was placed in a nursing home. Since then she has been working with nursing home facilities and oral care specialists to improve the oral health of this population. Dying From Dirty Teeth is a compilation of all the things she has learned while traveling this path.
Are you involved with a dental hygiene program? Many programs are incorporating Angie’s book and have her do a guest lecture for the students. If you are interested in this, contact Angie today!
Praise for Dying from Dirty Teeth
“Hundreds of thousands of our loved ones are living with, and sometimes dying from, painful and expensive conditions that could be ameliorated or avoided by adopting the sound win-win solutions proposed in this book by Angie Stone. Dying From Dirty Teeth is concise, accessible, and on the mark.”
“Angie conveys a compelling explanation of why poor oral hygiene is a long-term care facility’s most expensive and life impacting problem. It is silent and usually unrecognized. Angie offers solutions. If this easy to read message got to every nursing home resident’s family member and every decision-maker in Medicare and Medicaid, all nursing homes in the country would have a dental hygienist on staff. End-of-life care is financially crippling our country. The impact of the simple action steps she suggests could dramatically reduce the costs of hospitalizations related to diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, pneumonia, and others.”
“People are absolutely dying too soon from dirty teeth and Angie Stone’s book uncovers this ticking time bomb. Hear her warning and heed her call because this information will impact your aged loved ones right now and all of us sooner or later!”
