The Copper Ridge Institute
The Copper Ridge Institute has created a powerful link between research and education, putting the most up-to-date information into the hands of those who work with the memory-impaired – including spouses, adult children, nurses, doctors and assisted living staff. This combined approach ensures that the best methods of care are utilized until a cure is found.
Family Thanks Institute for Research and Education Opportunities: The Institute recently received a thank you letter from the family of a resident of Copper Ridge who participated in the ERK AD-Index study. This study, a collaboration with the Blanchette Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute, seeks to develop a definitive diagnostic test for Alzheimer’s disease using cultured skin cells.
