Alzheimer's: "The Long Goodbye"

November is National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month, bringing to the forefront the disease many refer to as "the long goodbye".  Tiffany Cloud-Mann from the Alzheimer’s Association’s Mid South chapter lists the warning signs of Alzheimer's, names some possible contributors to the disease, and explains the best ways to interact with those who have it.  Also, Donna Kumar and Rosemary Ramsay from the Council on Aging explain how they consolidate resources for caregivers as well as programs to assist seniors with everyday needs.  The Council on Aging is available at CouncilonAging-MidTN.org, and you can reach the Alzheimer's Association at Alz.org, or call the Alzheimer's National Helpline at 1-800-272-3900.
