Aging Matters | Living with Alzheimer's and Dementia

Aging Matters: Living with Alzheimer's and Dementia explores the impact these diseases are having on individuals, families and communities by weaving together the personal stories of those who are living with dementia, their care partners and commentary from leading experts in dementia. The program reveals the myths and stigmas that have hindered better living and better caring and examines the heavy burden of the costs associated with the disease, whether financial, physical or psychological by laying the foundation for a better understanding of the disease process, ways to care for those with dementia and the support systems families need in order to provide that care.
