As dedicated leaders in care for people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia, Kensington Place and sponsoring partner, Total Care Services, is committed to supporting research towards treatment and cure and making that information accessible to the greater public. In an effort to continually find ways to improve our residents’ quality of life, we have recently partnered with the Gladstone Institutes, a progressive organization that strives to overcome unsolved diseases—including Alzheimer’s—through transformative biomedical research. Hear a caregiver explain steps she took to support her dad after Alzheimer’s disease (AD) diagnosis. Gain insights into challenges to create better treatments. Learn ongoing efforts to develop novel therapeutic strategies to halt and prevent AD as well as other forms of dementia.
