If you knew you were going to get Alzheimer’s
disease, how would you live your life differently? What would you want your
family and loved ones to do when you no longer remembered them? We’ll talk with Nancy Bercaw,
author of a new memoir about dealing with Alzheimer’s in the family.
This week on Radiolab, the "Soul Patch" is not the way you style your facial hair, but the duct tape that keeps your life from falling apart. We’ll explore stories of unlikely (and surprisingly simple) answers to seemingly unsolvable problems.
We talk with two Vermonters – a medical researcher and a reporter –
about the cutting edge work underway to understand and treat memory loss
and Alzheimer’s Disease. We’ll also hear from farmers about the difficult
loss when a farm animal dies unexpectedly.
