The University of California,
San Francisco’s Memory and
Aging Center
,
has created a new YouTube channel to educate patients, caregivers and health professionals about neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, and to support the caregiver and loved ones as they cope with these illnesses. UCSF’s renowned clinical-researchers discuss disease characteristics – which are often subtle and not well known, even among members of the medical community. Personal stories of patients and family members are also featured, together with practical advice and coping strategies from healthcare professionals.
