We’ve created a series of videos with Dr. G. Allen Power, MD, a geriatrician, author and dementia care expert. He is the author of “Dementia Beyond Drugs: Changing the Culture of Care” and “Dementia Beyond Disease: Enhancing Well-Being.”
In this first video, Dr. Power talks about the numbers behind dementia. “Dementia is rising rapidly,” he states. He explains what’s behind the increase in dementia, a progressive disease that typically appears in people over 65 years of age and involves loss of cognitive abilities.
Watch the video to learn about lifetime risk of dementia and other details beyond the statistics.
