Alzheimer’s Patient and Caregiver Support

It’s often said, “If you’ve seen one person with Alzheimer’s, then you’ve seen one person with Alzheimer’s.” The disease affects everyone differently, but all patients and their families experience some form of grief and fear, not to mention the stress put on the caregivers.

In the third and final installment of UCTV Prime’s series “Heartache & Hope: America’s Alzheimer’s Epidemic,” UCLA researchers and clinicians offer up new models for healthcare and caregiver support that emphasize early diagnosis and support networks for everyone touched by the disease, including Patti Davis, daughter of Ronald Reagan, and TV personality Leeza Gibbons, who lost her mother to Alzheimer’s.

Watch “Alzheimer’s Patient and Caregiver Support – Heartache & Hope: America’s Alzheimer’s Epidemic (Ep. 3),” only on UCTV Prime.
