June is Alzheimer's Awareness Month, so we've talked about Alzheimer's Disease on our weekly Five for Friday episodes the last few weeks.
The typical trajectory for Alzheimer's Disease is around 8-10 years, which is why it's often called the "long goodbye." There are typically 3 phases to the disease trajectory: early stage, middle stage, and end stage. It's at the end stage when most people with Alzheimer's disease will need hospice care. Hospice care for an end stage Alzheimer's patient focuses on dignity and quality of life.
Learn what signs & symptoms are usually present when an Alzheimer's patient is at the end stage and can benefit from hospice care.
