Being Patient helps to create clarity around Alzheimer’s, dementia and related complex brain health issues by connecting our community of readers directly with trusted experts. In doing so, we do quite a bit of reading. Browse the books we love. And don’t forget to support local and independent bookstores! You can still do this when you shop online thanks to sites like

If you find our articles and interviews helpful, please consider becoming a supporting member of our community. Frustrated by the lack of an editorially independent source of information on brain health and Alzheimer’s disease, we decided to create Being Patient. We are a team of dedicated journalists covering the latest research on Alzheimer’s, bringing you access to the experts and elevating the patient perspective on what it’s like to live with dementia.

Please help support our mission.
