Alzheimer’s disease may not be one of the fastest-acting illnesses, but its psychological and emotional effects on patients and their families can be devastating. Although a cure for the disease has yet to be found, there are many lifestyle changes that can be taken to help prevent and slow the development of Alzheimer’s.
This week on “Take Care,” Drs. Richard Isaacson and Dale Atkins discuss some of the issues associated with Alzheimer’s and how to fight the disease once you or someone you know has been diagnosed. Dr. Isaacson is the director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic at New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center. He is also the author of "Alzheimer’s Treatment Alzheimer’s Prevention: A Patient & Family Guide" and "The Alzheimer’s Diet: A Step-by-Step Nutritional Approach for Memory Loss Prevention and Treatment." Dr. Atkins is a licensed psychologist who works with Alzheimer’s patients and their families.
