The Longest Loss: Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia

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 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.
