Alzheimer’s is one of the toughest diseases to deal with — both as a victim and as a caregiver.
Part of the problem is we can’t physically see these changes happening to us. So we default to arguing with loved ones when we should be supporting them.
In today’s episode, I’m joined by Janet Standifer — a certified Dementia Trainer and Consultant — to talk about the physical changes that happen in the brain from Alzheimer’s so you can spot them and deal with them in a more helpful manner.
