In the US, dementia, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's research isn't focused on in hospitals. It is especially lacking in the Punjabi diaspora - only about 10% of all cases are diagnosed in Punjab. Evergreen Dementia is here to change that. An organization run by a student, Evergreen Dementia uses videos, pamphlets, and a variety of other multimedia to fight for the awareness and rights of those with neurodegenerative diseases, and to clear the fog about these issues - and maybe even find a cure.
We provide videos helping not only with the education of those who don't know much about dementia, but also with those who have neurodegenerative disease in the family. You can find our recent talk at the San Jose Sikh Gurdwara here.
We compile informational pamphlets that concern life with dementia. Our resources are sure to help you navigate these trying times.
Find our Punjabi language resources here. Other languages and more resources are forthcoming.
TALKS AND SUMMITS
We've performed talks at a variety of events and in our local community concerning the intricacies of dementia. Information about our next upcoming event, a seminar we are doing in conjunction with Jakara Foundation, can be found here: jakara.org/neuro
