Information, care, and community understanding of Alzheimer’s disease were some of the topics addressed at a day long symposium on ethical issues surrounding Alzheimer’s.

The program, at Union Graduate College, attracted experts in the field and those providing care.

They recommend that when a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s is made, get as much information as you can about the disease, treatment and care options and  complete an advance directive so loved ones will know your wishes.

More information on Alzheimer’s and research studies can be found here.
