First and foremost, we at Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation would like to wish you and your family a very Happy Passover and Happy Easter. As we begin to welcome all things new with the start of spring, we wanted to share the below articles with you – outlining some new advancements.

Our first article outlines how researchers are moving closer to developing a blood test to help diagnose Alzheimer’s disease. The blood test measures a specific substance in the blood with 90 percent accuracy during the early stages of the disease. This advancement is paving the way for new developments to treat or curb the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

In our second article, researchers are helping caregivers find new ways to communicate and care for their loved ones, which studies show, can help improve overall well-being for caregivers as well as their partners. If you are a caregiver and find your communication strategies to be ineffective, you may find this article helpful in developing a different approach.

Thank you for your interest in learning more about the research progress being made at the Fisher Center. Together we can end Alzheimer’s.
