March 13, 2012, Santa Barbara — New and innovative research being developed in Alzheimer’s disease is the subject of the opening keynote address of the 2012 Alzheimer’s Association conference, Dementia: Current Trends & Future Directions, slated for April 18 at Montecito Country Club in Santa Barbara.

This annual, day-long conference features keynote speakers and workshop presentations in all aspects of dementia including legal and financial issues; public policy; behaviors; caregiving; patients’ rights; medication; and arts and creativity in the brain.

Marc Jacobson, Ph.D., licensed clinical psychologist with the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in San Diego and assistant professor at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, will present the opening keynote. Jacobson, recipient of an Alzheimer’s Association research award, will describe recent investigations into related neurodegenerative disorders (Huntington’s, Parkinson’s and others) that may have a big impact on Alzheimer research and treatment.

New this year, conference highlights will be available via Twitter as they happen during the day. People at the conference can participate in the Twitter conversation (#Alz2012), and anyone else can follow the conversation as well.

Created especially to meet the needs of caregivers — unpaid family members and professional caregivers —the conference is also open to anyone who wants to learn more about Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Professionals who attend are eligible for continuing education credits.

Some of the topics being covered at the conference include what to do after receiving an Alzheimer diagnosis; the legal and financial considerations of dementia; medications; and patients’ rights, among others. Conference details and registration information can be found at www.alz.org/cacentralcoast.

The conference is 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 18, at the Montecito Country Club in Santa Barbara. Participant registration is $95 per person, if registered by 5 p.m. April 1 — $105 after 5 p.m. April 9 — and includes breakfast and lunch. Registration is $125 at the door, if space permits. Last year the event sold out early.

Other presenters at the all-day conference include: Bruce L. Miller, M.D. professor of neurology at the University of California, San Francisco and clinical director of the Memory and Aging Center at UCSF; Dr. Lisa Hayden, clinical research psychologist at the Greater Los Angeles VA Healthcare System at West Los Angeles; Gary A. Martin, Ph.D., licensed psychologist and a geriatrics/long-term care specialist with Integrated Geriatric Behavioral Health Associates in Scottsdate, Ariz.; Mary C. Shea, senior deputy public Defender at the Ventura county Public Defender’s Office, specializing in conservatorship law; Cheri L. Elson, attorney at law in Ventura County who specializes in conservatorship law, estate planning, probate and special needs trusts; Dr. Linda Hewett, clinical professor at University of California, San Francisco at Fresno and co-director of the Alzheimer’s and Memory Care Center; Juan Manuel Gutierrez, Ph.D., principal, Clinical Neuropsychological Associates of Santa Barbara and a national specialist in clinical, forensic and organizational consultations regarding the brain; Karen Jones, executive director/program director, long term care ombudsman services of San Luis Obispo County; Lisa Snyder, MSW, LCSW, the clinical social worker and director of the Quality of Life Programs for the Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at the University of California, San Diego., MCDB, and co-director of the Neuroscience Research Institute; and Norman White, M.D., a consultant in geriatric psychiatry in San Luis Obispo.

The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer’s. The California Central Coast Chapter of the association covers San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura and Kern counties. alz.org/cacentralcoast

CarFit is a first-of-its-kind program that could make a lifesaving difference to both older drivers and their loved ones. Developed through collaboration among the American Society on Aging, AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association, CarFit is the first program to offer older adults the opportunity to check how their personal cars “fit” them. The Camarillo Police Department will be conducting CarFit on Saturday 3/10/12 from 900 AM to 1200 PM at the Camarillo Police Department

Trained CarFit technicians will lead older drivers through a 12-point checklist with their vehicle, recommend car adjustments and adaptations and offer community specific resources and activities that could make their cars “fit” better or enhance their safety.

People over 65 are the fastest-growing population in the United States. By 2030, one in
five drivers will be age 65 or older, which means there will be more than 30 million older
drivers on our roads. Because of their fragility, seniors have the highest crash death rate
per mile of everyone except teenagers.

This service is free of charge, but an appointment is necessary. Please call Senior Deputy
Sean Britt at 805-388-5130 to make an appointment or for further questions.

Simi Valley, CA - Residents living in and around the Simi Valley, California community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. Simi Hills Christian Church will host Life Line Screening on 3/7/2012. The site is located at 4307 Walnut Avenue in Simi Valley.
Richard Bennet from Woodland Hills, CA, participated in a Life Line Screening event in March 2008 and learned he had an abdominal aortic aneurysm. He writes, "I feel as though Life Line Screening saved my life and can't thank you enough!"

Four key points every person needs to know:
. Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of
permanent disability
. 80% of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their
stroke
. Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke
. Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and
convenient

For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-800-697-9721 or visit our website at www.lifelinescreening.com.
Pre-registration is required.

Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women. Many sites offer finger-stick blood tests to check for cholesterol and glucose.

Packages start at 149. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete.
Life Line Screening was established in 1993, and has since become the nation's leading provider of preventive screenings.
