Early Alzheimer's in parent exacts heavy toll on young adult children

Early-onset Alzheimer's disease strikes some people in their prime, when careers are at their height and the rewards of a lifetime's work at last seem within grasp. Young adult children can also find themselves thrown into the unfamiliar role of their parent's caregiver.
