Episode Description:

Dementia describes a group of cognitive disorders primarily affecting older adults and is usually marked by difficulty with language, motor activity, and the ability to plan and organize. The most well-know of these conditions is Alzheimer’s disease, currently affecting 5.3 million Americans. The number of patients with Alzheimer’s, however, is increasing rapidly along with an aging population, and estimates are that by 2050, up to 16 million people will be afflicted. The impact of this condition on a patient is slow and tragic. Yet the effects of dementia go far beyond the patient. What should families consider when confronted with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s? What difficulties will patients and families face? And what resources are available to help them?
