Lots in the News

It seems silly to say that three news articles in one day to cross my desk is a heavy news day, but it is in the Alzheimer's reading list.  Now, they weren't all posted yesterday, they just came to my attention yesterday.  Thought I'd share.

From NPR, Can Technology Ease the Burden of Caring for People with Dementia?

From Huffington Post, New Study Says Memory and Thinking Tests Could Signal Alzheimer's Up to 18 Years Early.

From CBS News, Scientists Explore Why Most Alzheimer's Patients are Women.

Perhaps we're engaging more in dialogue about Alzheimer's.  This is a good thing.  With the pending Silver Tsunami, we need to remove the stigma associated with Alzheimer's and discuss it widely.  We used to whisper "cancer" and just dismiss dementia as a collection of "senior moments."  I think we're moving beyond that and recognizing the seriousness and impact of the disease.
