Alzheimer's research is exploring possible interventions on the causes, in order to operate during the phase in which the disease does not show its symptoms, with the purpuse of delaying Alzheimer's appearing and, therefore, opposing its onset and progression.
Remain to be known:
- molecular and cellular mechanisms on which disease cellular alterations operate
- possible therapeutic interventions time window.
Investigations on disease development (before cognitive symptoms appear) represent the core of Alzheimer's research.
Since 2013, we have been committed to carrying out the "Laboratori Benessere", project, consisting of wellness laboratories dedicated to at least 60-year-old people - aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles - and engaged in testing a computerised memory-training programme (a Oplon initiative) which takes place online, in collaboration with other regional centres. Moreover, starting from 2018, the project will be arranged in four more cities.
People with dementia and those who attend them are welcomed at Caffè Dolcini - in Mercato Saraceno - and at Caffè Alto Savio - in San Piero in Bagno - whereas in Cesena and Sarsina (at Convivium), once a week, lunch is cooked all together. Otherwise, in order to spend the afternoon together and jog memories, people suffering from Alzheimer's and their families can join our "Laboratori RiattivaMente", that is to say "mind-awakening" laboratories dedicated to patients residing in Cesena and Valle del Savio.
Is it possible to organise a big sport initiative in the spirit of wellness as prevention and whose protagonist is Alzheimer's? Yes, it is! In fact, we have been organising "MARATONA ALZHEIMER" for five years, that is to say an event made up of several competitive races over different distances (43 km, 31 km and 21 km) and walking courses open to everyone that offers the community an extremely precious chance of consciousness raising.
Thanks to the support offered by many people, institutions and donor associations and to volunteers and professionals' commitment, Onlus "Amici di Casa Insieme" has been able to carry on its activities, all aimed at spreading awareness about the disease and at fighting - beside people with dementia and their families - against Alzheimer's, by promoting prevention interventions and sustaining the research. Our initiatives have been attended by over 400 participants. Now you have the chance to help us too!
Thanks to your donation, a young researcher will be able to dedicate himself to the study of
the cerebral alterations that occur at the cellular level before Alzheimer's symptoms appear, in order
to develop possible therapeutical interventions to counter the disease.
