How can a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease help patients and their families?
In this special sponsored episode, we explore the importance of identifying Alzheimer’s disease early. Our guests will be neurologist Andrew E. Budson and Alzheimer’s caregivers Jess Rappé and Ellie Freedman. They will share their expertise and personal experiences as we delve into the challenges of diagnosing Alzheimer’s, its impact on patients, families, and society, and the benefits of early detection. We’ll also discuss practical steps that primary care clinicians can take to facilitate earlier diagnoses, including increasing understanding of early signs and symptoms, conducting regular assessments, using objective tools, and communicating effectively with patients and families.
