When the diagnosis is Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, grief doesn’t wait for death. Grieving can begin before a formal diagnosis or in the doctor’s office when patients and families receive confirmation of illness. Over a span of what may be a decade or more, multiple losses associated with dementia become a pervasive part of everyday life for millions of patients, families and friends. After the death, survivors’ grief may be complicated by the nature of a lengthy disease process that has changed their relationship with the deceased. Through a combination of candid, compelling interviews and unscripted in-studio discussions, experts will identify how medical and social service professionals can best improve care for patients, families and themselves while coping with loss and grief associated with these progressive illnesses.
