Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s is predicted to be one of the biggest global health crises of the 21st century. It’s set to affect almost 150 million people worldwide by 2050 and, to date, every clinical trial in the search for a cure has failed. Scientists are still trying to unravel the causes of this complex disease, exploring everything from genetics and the brain’s anatomy to air pollution and gender in the search for answers. In the meantime, medical systems are struggling to provide adequate care to Alzheimer’s patients–often leaving family and friends to take up the burden, resulting in huge financial and psychological hardship. We explain the latest research on the treatment, care and prevention of the disease from the patient and caregiver’s point of view, highlighting the crucial developments in the search for a cure.


Podcasts

What is it like to live with Alzheimer’s disease? The Being Patient Podcast gives a rare account of what it’s like to live with Alzheimer’s from the patient’s perspective. The first of an ongoing series, we feature Brian Kursonis. Diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in his fifties, Brian explains why it took a year to get a diagnosis and how he’s fighting a declining memory.
