Despite significant breakthroughs in medical knowledge, Alzheimer’s disease is still shrouded in stigma and misconception. In this episode, we hear personal stories of what living with Alzheimer’s is like. We hear from people who are in the early stages and managing well, as well as carers and medical professionals working with advanced Alzheimer’s patients. If you love someone with advanced Alzheimer’s disease, stay tuned for an upcoming episode on how to manage your new normal– especially when the going gets tough.
