This excellent film provides family caregivers an informative explanation of Alzheimer’s, how it affects different parts of the brain, and the specific changes that take place as a result. It also explains the three stages of Alzheimer’s (Early Stage, Moderate Stage, and Late Stage), identifies the most common symptoms, and shows how to simplify and adapt care for each stage. The film (1) gives caregivers a broader understanding of Alzheimer’s and its potential effects, and (2) equips caregivers to provide dignified care to persons during the various stages of dementia.
