    ·   Plan ahead. Research the care options available in your community soon after you receive a diagnosis.
        Many long term care facilities have waiting lists, so it is important to get your name on the list before a
        crisis occurs. Becoming familiar in advance with the staff will also help you become more comfortable with
        the facility.

    · Define your new caregiving role. Your role changes (but doesn’t end) when a loved one moves into a care
       facility. You may want to come in for meals or do an activity together, such as attending a church service.
       This change can be very difficult so it is good to stay active and pursue some of your own interests as well.
       Enjoying yourself in no way means that you are abandoning or forgetting your loved one.

    · Talk with others about your feelings and emotions. Many people find it helpful to join one of the
        many support groups sponsored by the Greater Iowa chapter. Or you can spend time getting to know other
        family members who may be visiting loved ones. Talking to others who are experiencing similar situations
        can be extremely helpful.

    · Maintain good communication with staff. Share your concerns and suggestions with staff so they can
       provide a safe and comfortable environment for the individual. You know your loved one better than anyone
       so offering detailed information will not only help the staff, but also improve the quality of life for the
       person with Alzheimer’s.

    · Develop a visitation schedule that is comfortable for you. At first, you may need some time away to
       process the change, define your new role and accept the placement. Visit with a friends or family member if
       it is too difficult to visit alone. Encourage other family members to visit with you or at times when you are
       not able to. This is a good way to involve the family in the person’s care.

In order to provide information about Alzheimer’s Disease more efficiently, the Greater Iowa Chapter is offering a new
option for receiving the quarterly newsletter, as well as introducing e-news options.
    1) Sign up to receive the quarterly newsletter in your email in-box instead of a printed copy. It’s easier to forward
        on to friends and family, and you will be helping the Alzheimer’s Association save money on postage and printing.
    2) Would you like to receive periodic electronic updates on research developments, Alzheimer’s news, advocacy
        efforts and care giving information?

If the answer is yes to either of these options, please send an email to, and in the body of the
email, please state if you would like to receive the e-newsletter and/or the e-updates, and your mailing address. You can
also go to and follow the links to email your preference there as well.
Awards and Recognitions
Thomas W. Cross Earns Award in Fight Against Alzheimer’s
Greater Iowa Chapter Board President Thomas Cross, Finance Director-Business Unit Financial Planning for
Pioneer HiBred, recently received a DuPont Volunteer Recognition award from his company.These awards
recognize employees who are contributors both at work and in their community, as volunteers.Tom received this
award in recognition of his work with the Alzheimer’s Association. He takes his work with the organization very
personally, having watched both his mother and a grandmother battle the disease.

“I’m fighting Alzheimer’s because I want to spare others from going through what my family went through,”Tom
says. He adds, “It was great to be recognized for my work; the certificate I received in a constant reminder that I
need to stay focused on beating Alzheimer’s.” In addition to the certificate, DuPont made a $1,000 donation to the
Alzheimer’s Association in Tom’s name. Besides his duties as Board President,Tom also is a major fundraiser for the
Des Moines Memory Walk, raising over $11,000 in 2005.

Sarah Staniz Named “Hero of the Heartland”
The Central Iowa Chapter of the American Red Cross recently recognized Sarah Stanisz, Program Coordinator for
Arbor Springs in West Des Moines and Greater Iowa Chapter board member, as a “Hero of the Heartland”. Sarah
was commended for her tireless efforts over many years to not only support the Greater Iowa Chapter’s mission and
work, but for her efforts to educate the public about Alzheimer’s disease.

 News and Updates
 New Drug Targets Both Plaques and Tangles
For the first time, an experimental drug has been shown to curb both forms of brain lesions found in Alzheimer’s
disease — at least in mice.The compound, called AF267B, shut down both the amyloid protein plaques that collect
in Alzheimer’s-affected brains, as well as another lesion, the “tangles” of protein called tau.

What’s more, AF267B also appeared to reverse cognitive declines in mice genetically designed to mimic
Alzheimer’s disease. Mice appeared to gain renewed powers of memory and learning after treatment, the researchers
report in the March 2 issue of Neuron.

Green Tea May Protect the Aging Brain
People who regularly drink green tea may have a lesser risk of mental decline as they grow older, researchers have
found.Their study, of more than 1,000 Japanese adults in their 70s and beyond, found that the more green tea men
and women drank, the lower their odds of having cognitive impairment.

The researchers found that older adults who drank two or more cups of green tea per day were about half as likely
to show cognitive impairment as those who drank three cups or less each week. Men and women who averaged
one cup per day fell somewhere in between.

The connection between green tea and mental function persisted when the researchers accounted for overall diet
and factors such as smoking and exercise habits. However, the findings cannot demonstrate a cause-and-effect
relationship. For example, healthier, more active individuals may simply drink more green tea — which, in Japan, is
often consumed in social settings.
