I became a foster parent with the intentions of putting a roof over the heads of orphaned children. I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
By the time I completed the training process, I understood that the majority of the children that would be entering my home were not orphans. I was brainwashed into believing the children had come from abusive and neglectful homes. I was told the state had rescued them from horrible living environments and that I was somewhat of a hero for taking them in.
They were all lies. It took several years for me to truly see what I had become a part of.
ARCH Disability Law Centre and The Law Society of Upper Canada present Law Society Public Education Equality Series:
The Carter decision on physician- assisted suicide: where do people with disabilities go from here?
The recent decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in Carter has raised serious questions about its impact on persons with disabilities — many are concerned that the decision leaves them vulnerable.
Join the ARCH Disability Law Centre and the Law Society for a discussion about the Carter decision. The discussion will address what Carter means for persons with disabilities; explore the community’s concerns about the decision; and offer guidance on how community members can ensure that their voices are heard in any legislative process that develops, in order to guarantee that the interests of all persons with disabilities are recognized and protected.

This is the Medscape Neurology Minute. I am Dr Alan Jacobs. Researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have published a case series studying behavioral changes that precede the onset of memory loss in early Alzheimer disease. They analyzed data from 2416 people aged 50 years or older who underwent regular evaluations of cognitive functions and mental health over 7 years. All participants were cognitively normal at the start. Over the course of the study, 1218 people developed dementia. Four years into the study, 30% of these patients had developed depression. Only 15% of the patents who did not develop dementia within 4 years developed depression. The individuals who went on to develop dementia were 12 times more likely to have delusions in the first 4 years. The researchers caution that a better understanding of how these mood and behavioral changes are connected to Alzheimer disease will be needed before we can use these changes as pre-dementia markers.
