Show #48: Living with Young Onset Alzheimer’s Disease

Show #48: Living with Young Onset Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common form of dementia.  With Alzheimer’s worsening as it progresses, no currently known cure, and the disease eventually leading to death, it is a disease that we must work to raise awareness of and learn more about.  In this week on Radio 4 the Ages, we speak with Sylvia Fiano.  Sylvia has Young Onset Alzheimer’s Disease, which is Alzheimer’s Disease that starts presenting symptoms in a person before the age of 65.  She talks about her life, experience with the disease, and provides us with a glimpse of what living with Alzheimer’s looks like.  We also are joined by Becca Carpenter and Teresa Hoover, both of the Alzheimer’s Association – Western Carolina Chapter.  Also joining us via phone is Dr. Rosalyn Lang-Walker to talk about community based research, education, and advocacy for Alzheimer’s Disease.  To learn more about Alzheimer’s, how it affects lives from the standpoint of someone living with the disease, and how you can get involved in the Alzheimer’s community, tune in!
