(BPT) - Having a conversation about Alzheimer’s can be difficult — but it is so important. Early detection can offer significant benefits for the person diagnosed and their loved ones, including more informed decision-making and planning, better medical care, greater respect for patient’s wishes, and access to services and support. Family members know their loved ones best. If something feels different, it could be Alzheimer’s. Visit alz.org/OurStories to learn how to start the conversation.
