The Centers for Disease Control predicts Alzheimer’s cases will double yet a Door County health care provider says all news is not bad. Christy Wisniewski, a geriatric outreach specialist with Door County Medical Center in Sturgeon Bay, says that promising treatments are being developed and that means all the news about Alzheimer’s and dementia is not bleak.
Wisnewski says Door County Medical Center offers a free memory clinic that can be done at the hospital or confidentially at home. It can help determine whether someone has memory problems that naturally come with aging or the early signs of Alzheimers or dementia.
