A Sixties' Recipe for Treating Alzheimer's
The New York Times reports on the depressing statistics of Alzheimer's disease:
4.5 million people in the United States have Alzheimer’s, 1 in 10 over 65 and nearly half of those over 85. Taking care of them costs $100 billion a year, and the number of patients is expected to reach 11 million to 16 million by 2050. Experts say the disease will swamp the health system.
Researchers and drug companies aren't even close to a cure. So what's a person to do when faced with a parent or loved one with dementia or Alzheimer's?
Take a cue from those of the '60's generation: Go with the flow.
