Alzheimer’s Disease: What Caregivers Need to Know

Alzheimer’s Disease is a brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually robs people of the ability to do even the simplest tasks. Loved ones and caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients face many challenges, but help is available. Becoming knowledgeable about the disease is the first step.  A panel of experts joins host, Jonathan Fialkow, M.D., to discuss what is known about Alzheimer’s and to share resources available to help patients and their caregivers.

 Guests:

· Khalid Hanafy, M.D., Chief of Neurology at Baptist Health’s Marcus Neuroscience Institute

· Gillian Generoso, M.D., an internal medicine physician with Baptist Health Primary Care

·  Keith Gibson, Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the Alzheimer’s Association
