Dementia is a broad term that doesn’t give you the whole picture
Did you know that nine types of dementia make up about 98% of all cases and that being told your aging parent “has dementia” isn’t the full story?
Gerontologist Dr. Tam Cummings has spent two decades working in dementia communities. She talks with Kim & Mike Barnes and explains that dementia is an umbrella term that doesn’t give you enough information.
She shares why knowing which form of dementia is so important, how to go about getting the right diagnosis and how understanding the stages can help you as the caregiver.
