Celebrity may provide many opportunities and open many doors; however, it doesn't protect against dementia, especially Alzheimer's disease.  The list of celebrities who have been directly touched by the disease is increasing.  A number are care providers and several have announced their diagnoses.

Celebrities may have more financial resources available to them to aid in the care of their loved one or in their own care.  However, they are no more prepared than the rest of us when the diagnosis is given.  What they do have though is a louder voice and a larger audience.  They can bring their celebrity to bear and garner more attention to the dementia related diseases or the role of the care giver.
