I came to this class to learn about new research on drug development or maybe new discoveries in neuroscience, this is the brain disease after all, and only the last 19 minutes video was about new development and the search for cure.
Taking care of people with Alzheimer's disease is a 24/7 duty, at some point they forget how to talk, walk, swallow, but we have no choice but keep loving them and assisting them as long as they breathe because they are our parents.
