Hey there Careblazer! Welcome back to Careblazers blog, the place where we talk about everything dementia. If you are caring for a loved one with any type of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy Body Dementia, or vascular dementia, then this is the place for you! I post every week on the topic of dementia caregiving.
This week over on my YouTube channel, CareblazersTV, I had the privilege of talking with Dr. Jason Karlawish, physician and author. He is a Professor of Medicine, Medical Ethics and Health Policy, and Neurology at the University of Pennsylvania and Co-Director of the Penn Memory Center, where he cares for patients. In this interview we talked about the possibility of being diagnosed with dementia BEFORE memory problems set in, the challenges in being able to diagnose & treat dementia, AND what we can do as a system to help improve the well-being of people with dementia and their caregivers. I'm so excited for you to learn more about this interview.
