Older residents in Door and Kewaunee Counties should not fret about forgotten appointments or misplaced car keys. Christy Wisnewski, Door County Medical Center Geriatric Outreach Specialist, says such instances are not necessarily early signs of Alzheimer’s Disease. Wisnewski says a visit to your doctor can realistically assess your situation.
While the Centers for Disease Control predict Alzheimer’s cases will double by 2060, Wisnewski says experimental medical treatments are showing promising results that could help patients and their families better cope with the disease.
