Understanding Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease

What is the difference between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia? Is Alzheimer’s a disease only older people get? How do I interact with a confused loved one?  What can I expect after a dementia diagnosis? Over five million Americans are estimated to have Alzheimer’s disease today. The number of Americans diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias will grow steadily each year as our population age 65+ continues to increase. With 10,000 people turning 65 each day, it is important we discuss the answers to these often asked questions. This short course will explore different types of dementia, the “typical” progression of Alzheimer’s disease, and how to improve communication and interactions with someone with dementia throughout their disease.
