Alzheimer's Association's Carl V. Hill discusses caregivers of color, dementia research
How do you make a plan of action about an aging parent’s Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis with your siblings? What if your doctor knows even less than you know about the prognosis of dementia?
Those are several questions asked by more than 250 local caregivers who attended the Dr. Lemuel and Gloria Rogers Health Symposium Thursday, held by the Rochester & Finger Lakes chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
