DementiaGuide Inc.(DGI) is a federally incorporated Canadian company committed to providing information that can help people with dementia, and those who care for them.

DementiaGuide Inc.(DGI) is a federally incorporated Canadian company committed to providing information that can help people with dementia, and those who care for them. In September 2006, DGI launched www.dementiaguide.com . The website has over 800 pages of information about symptoms of dementia and their care. Each symptom is described through a standard format including real life descriptors, the stage of the disease, management techniques and what is happening in the brain. SymptomGuide is an interactive tool that provides an easy to use method of selecting symptoms that an individual is exhibiting and then capturing them in a profile that can be tracked over time and used to communicate with family, physicians and other care providers.

www.dementiaguide.com was founded by Dr. Kenneth Rockwood, an internationally recognized researcher and geriatrician with over 200 publications and an author of 6 books and textbooks on aging and dementia. He has an active clinical practice in conjunction with Geriatric Medicine Research Unit at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia.

How DementiaGuide works:

DementiaGuide provides an inventory of over 60 symptoms that are commonly described as targets for treatment by patients and caregivers. For each symptom in the inventory, there is a list of typical descriptions of how these symptoms affect people in their daily lives. The symptoms cover seven general domains (or categories): thinking and judgement, behaviour, memory and language, physical changes, personality changes, everyday activities and leisure activities.

DementiaGuide allows users to not only select from the symptom inventory, but will also provide information about each symptom: where it fits in the spectrum of dementia, how commonly it occurs, how likely it is to respond to treatment, and strategies for coping if it does not.

Users receive guidance on how to select and describe symptoms that are particular to one person, to track changes in those symptoms through their individual Symptom Profile over time. There is also detailed information on different symptom management techniques that caregivers and physicians have used that may be of help. The symptom customization feature allows the user to print out profiles (reports/graphs) pertaining to the personГ­s symptoms that are very useful as information for discussion with physicians and other caregivers or family members.

When the patient/caregiver visits their physician, they will bring with them a very precise record of their changes. In turn, the patient is more likely to have a meaningful conversation with the physician and to get good advice. In this way, DementiaGuide provides critical information pertaining to diagnostic and disease management support.
