Even though we know a lot more about Alzheimer's disease now than we used to, there are still a lot of misunderstandings about the disease. So in this episode, we hear from people with Alzheimer's disease about their day-to-day lives. Caregivers and medical professionals also share their experiences caring for people with more advanced Alzheimer's disease. 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.
