One thought on “Video from Harvard forum on #Alzheimers #dementia

  1. As a gerontological nurse practitioner working with patients with AD and their and families I support research into testing, diagnosis and treatment of this disease. The earlier the family knows about the disease the more they can do to assist the patient in making decisions for care. Without this understanding of the patient’s preferences loved ones are put into situations where they unknowingly reduce the quality of life of the patient by not providing needed support. Care givers themselves also suffer because of feelings of isolation and worry when they could be recipients of support.
