Senator William Proxmire rocked the political boat more than once in his 32 years as a United States Senator, a record breaking tenure matched by only 24 other members in the history of the country. While in office, Senator Proxmire often advocated for action, and he was well known for creating “The Golden Fleece” Awards, wherein he used his wit to shine the limelight on government waste, abuse and scandal. Currently, his wife Ellen continues to take up his position as political activist, working to secure funds for research into care issues for those struggling with the illness.
Dr. Brandt concentrates on finding new and better ways to understand, diagnose and treat Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, and to transmit that knowledge to others who care for dementia sufferers.
Climbing into a shower to model how to care for a resident with dementia is all in a day’s work for Cindy Steele, RN, MPH. This kind of hands-on training on caring for residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia is an integral part of Copper Ridge’s educational program.
