NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 12, 2014) - At any given time, family caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses can face a variety of challenges, from changing behaviors to changing interpersonal relationships. To help provide caregivers with an opportunity to express their feelings and learn practical coping skills, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) will be hosting two phone-based support groups this fall.
The first group is for spousal caregivers of individuals with dementia and will focus on how to adapt and manage changing relationships, including intimacy issues. The group will meet Mondays from 3:00-4:00 p.m. EDT, September 8-October 20, excluding Columbus Day, October 13.
The second support group will offer family caregivers ways to integrate stress management techniques into their busy lifestyles. The group will meet Wednesdays from 1:30-2:30 p.m. EDT from October 8 to November 12.
"Family caregivers truly are superheroes, juggling myriad responsibilities in and outside the home," said Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., AFA's president and chief executive officer. "We know people can't always take the time to attend an in-person support group or may not have access to one locally so we wanted to provide an opportunity for them to connect with our social workers and other caregivers from the convenience of their homes or offices."
Each group will be facilitated by one of AFA's licensed clinical social workers. Space is limited and registration is required. To register for either group, call 866-232-8484 or e-mail [email protected].
It is estimated that, currently, more than five million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and the incidence is expected to triple by mid-century. The brain disorder is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance).
