Alzheimer's disease affects more than 6 million Americans, with an estimated 44,000 diagnosed cases here in Nevada (and likely many more undiagnosed cases as well). This week on Renoites, Conor welcomes Niki Rubarth and Denise Hund from the Alzheimer's Association of Northern California and Nevada.
We talk about the symptoms of Alzheimer's, the difference between Dementia and Alzheimers, risk factors and warning signs, early onset Alzheimer's that can affect younger people, resources and programs for family caregivers of Alzheimer's patients, the importance of support groups, a new breakthrough monoclonal antibody treatment in clinical trials, and so much more.
Thank you so much for listening! Please be sure to tell everyone you know about this podcast so that I can continue to bring these conversations to the people of the Reno area. If you have suggestions for guests or topics, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I appreciate your support!
