Ignorance is not bliss with a dementia diagnosis
From the Alzheimer's Association today came a Huffington Post article written by William E. Klunk, M.D., Ph.D. Citing the Alzheimer's Association publication 2015 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures, and reflecting on his own patients with dementia, Dr. Klunk encourages doctors to more universally disclose dementia diagnoses. Revealing the truth about dementia diagnoses will ultimately aid research for prevention and cures ~ and help families address the issues they now face. William Klunk's article, For Most People With Alzheimer's, Ignorance Is Not Bliss is an article you'll identify with if your loved one exhibits dementia symptoms.
