Turning Inward

As the weather chills, we all head inside to stay warm. We hope this issue of Preserving Your Memory helps keep you comforted during these cooler months.

We spoke with Joan Lunden about the challenges and rewards of caregiving (page 18). We also talked with Kathleen Kelly of the Family Caregiver Alliance about the new National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease and what it means to caregivers (page 27).

You’ve just found out a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. What’s your next step? We are here to guide you (page 8). We take the guesswork out of handling pet care (page 12) and personal care (page 30) for loved ones who have Alzheimer’s.

On the research front, we talk to Fisher Center scientist Dr. Marc Flajolet about an exciting new direction in Alzheimer’s research (page 11). And we meet three researchers who were honored with awards by MetLife Foundation (page 14).

We hope you enjoy this special issue of Preserving Your Memory.
