    I believe knowledge is power. I also believe the only way someone can truly care is if they understand to a point what is going on. I know some people are confused with AD. In general there are so many types, but have found a generalized knowledge of the brain and how AD affects it....thought you all might want to see it..http://www.actionalz.org/inside_the_brain.asp

    I came across this YouTube video clip, giving a basic explanation of dementia/Alzheimer's Disease. Nothing new to most carers here, but could be useful in helping friends/family/children gain some understanding from a 'neutral' source, rather than a difficult & emotional discussion.
