Geriatrics & Gerontology
Losing your memory is not a normal part of ageing; it may be a disease called dementia. And while there is no cure for it, there are many ways to manage the disease. This program offers ideas to caregivers, and a chance to see and hear others’ experience. Several families dealing with Alzheimer’s disease are followed. One family uses an adult day-care centre, another has in-home care. Children are shown learning how to handle their grandparents’ disease through storytelling and literature.
