Socializing Chronic Disease

For linkpad this week we are focusing in on an important campaign that was launched by the Alzheimer's Society this past month.

The campaign is called: "See me, not my disease. Let's talk about dementia." There are a number of interesting, candid and emotionally profound interactive links associated with this campaign.

  • Test your attitude - This link takes you to a quiz that offers a number of situations and asks how you would handle them. There are no wrong answers, but your responses may surprise you.
  • Hear what others are saying - Learn more about dementia from people living with the disease. I found the stories and videos shared on this link were really profound. Brave people sharing their personal experiences with this illness helps increase our understanding of the illness and brings important issues into public awareness.
  • On Facebook and Twitter - Check out the Alzheimer's Society links on Facebook and Twitter for daily polls, trivia and other activities and share in the online conversation.
