Synopsis by Alice Day
Alzheimer's disease, and its effects on family members, is the topic of Doctor Is In: Alzheimer's Disease, another in the series of nationally syndicated television programs offering information about a variety of medical conditions. Many Americans suffer from Alzheimer's and its debilitating symptom of memory loss, and must rely on family caregivers or medical personnel for help. Ways to meet the challenge of care are presented, and include the use of adult daycare. The stages of Alzheimer's are explained, and pointers are given to help minimize its effects.
