The Society still says there is NO treatment for Alzheimers and NO cure for Alzheimers, despite these results showing exactly the opposite!
I have just contacted the Alzheimers helpdesk on 0300 222 1122, and they refused to commit on a comment about the news in the Metro today about a drug which might provide some benefit to Alzheimers patients. There is also nothing about the research on the Website. As you both know my wife is in the last stages of Alzhemiers, so this is disappointing as she does not have the years to wait for even more clinical tests.
As far as I can see there is no restriction on prescribing one Aspirin Tablet a day,as it has already passed its drug tests for safety and is recommended for heart patients to be taken daily to improve their well being. I have had to ask my doctor whether she will authorise the prescription on the basis that it can do no harm and might benefit Cornelia’s condition before she dies. Report in 2018 See https://www.rush.edu/news/press-releases/can-aspirin-treat-alzheimers It might aid people in my wife’s situation to get it tried out, before people DIE of the disease with NO intervention.
I say again it requires NO CLINICAL TRIAL to give a known, tested drug for another purpose (i.e.. saving life) as it would have no other impact on the patient (already proven).

Recently I had to help out someone transferring files (photo and videos) to a Windows laptop PC.
Unfortunately Apple has changed the software for Ipads over version 10, so now the Windows driver software cannot cope. You can still see the internal memory on the Ipad, you just cannot save to it, or get files from it.
So apart from a USB lead which plugs into the Ipad and the USB socket on the PC (same as the one you use for charging the Ipad from a USB charger), you now need to download and run some software on the PC.
There are several programs on the Internet that allow you to transfer files without using Apples Itunes running on the PC, including those that are charged for.
But one of them is Free and I have used, it is called “EaseUS MobiMover”, which allows you to transfer files both ways to and from the PC.
If you are available it would be great if you could attend the “Hackathon” in the London Borough of Hackney “Techy” week. As you have an understanding and experience of the challenges of your loved ones and people you care for on a daily basis your input would be invaluable.
The people attending are from a variety of tech companies and they have been set the task to come up with simple Information Computing Technology (ICT) solutions to make life easier, e.g. booking a train ticket, buying groceries on-line, banking…
