EPISODE DESCRIPTION

This program casts light on the effects of Alzheimer's and dementia on family caregivers in the black community. Dr. Monica Willis Parker explains the social and medical risk factors for dementia, and exposes the most critical issues facing family caregivers, especially women. Cathy Simpson of the Georgia Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association discusses the current policy landscape for tackling Alzheimer's disease at the national level. In the last segment, we hear from an African American woman caring for a family member with dementia about her everyday experiences balancing caregiving obligations and personal life.
