On Thursday, June 6, 2013 Ray Suarez of the PBS NewsHour will examine Alzheimer’s disease and what it takes to care for a loved one. More than five million Americans now suffer from the disease and related dementias. Barring a breakthrough, the figure could triple by 2050. Many of those with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia will fade slowly and require years of long-term care during the decline.
