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.
The Alzheimer's Association leads the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.
