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

Now, they’re breaking their silence On an afternoon in early November, I arrived at Tony Bennett’s home on the 15th floor of a high-rise on the southern edge of New York City’s Central Park. 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

通过 评论, 在新闻中, UCI思想

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