Caregivers Are Using A Simple But Effective Way To Help Dementia Patients
Apr 22, 2015
Despite recent efforts, diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia are relatively new subjects of study, with about 90 percent of the current information about Alzheimer's being collected in the past 15 years.
This potential method of treating the accompanying fear and confusion faced by those suffering from the disease could be very valuable to caregivers everywhere, who try so many things to keep their patients comfortable. It may be surprising to learn that such a sweet method was inspired by the film "50 First Dates," starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.
Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia are diseases that more and more elderly individuals have to face each year. In fact, Alzheimer's is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control.
