Excellent overview of what happens in Alzheimers Disease
26 November 2013 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Many people have a basic understanding of dementia, which is equated by most as the same as Alzheimer's Disease. However, there are multiple causes of dementia, with Alzheimer's only being the most common. This multipart series does an excellent job of humanizing the condition. There is a tendency to only think of those with very early memory problems or others who are bedbound with end-stage dementia. The Alzheimer's Project wonderfully illustrates the whole spectrum of the dementia process. Having a personal special interest in dementia care, I found this series to be the best single resource for non-clinicians to learn about Alzheimer's Disease.
