Speaker Natalie Hamela is a new ICB member. Originally from Germany, she has lived 11 years in Switzerland, working first in communication and marketing, and then in the social and health area. She has certified at the Technical University of Berne (Demenz und Lebensgestaltung), and now works for the Berne association for Alzheimer’s illness ( )

Natalie will begin by telling us about the different forms of dementia and what is described as Alzheimer’s disease. The typical symptoms can be recognised both in others and in oneself. It is important to understand the reasons for strange behaviour of relatives and friends who are ill in this way – to understand them from their own perspectives, how do they feel. This helps with planning and caring for them, as well as adapting for its effect on family and others.

There are also many methods to maintain the health of our minds – exercises and memory games, for instance. Our recall is invigorated with stimulations by sound and smell, for instance, and through song and movement..

At around 8 pm we will have a break for snacks and drinks, and following this there is time for discussion and perhaps to do some memory exercises.

Attendance is free for members and CHF 5 for non-members. Places are limited – please register in advance so that we know how many attendees to provide for
