New Study Finds People with Dementia are Twice as Likely to Get COVID-19

Por Comentario, COVID-19, En las noticias, MENTE UCI

The findings highlight the need to prioritize and protect people with dementia as part of the strategy to control the pandemic.

The sprawling three-bedroom apartment’s wall of windows opens on a heart-stopping view of the park and floods the rooms with a steady north light — “a painter’s dream,” as Bennett once said — which matters, because as well as being one of the world’s greatest singers, he is also a serious visual artist….

Advance Directive for Dementia

Por Comentario, En las noticias, MENTE UCI

How much medical care would you want if you had Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia?
