Non-Clinical Benefits of Early Detection of Alzheimer's Disease

Contributed by: Dennis Fortier, President, Medical Care Corporation

In this short video from PBS, the National Alzheimer's Association's Medical Director, William Thies summarizes the non-clinical benefits of getting an early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease.

He doesn't touch on the emerging evidence that treatment, even with currently approved medications, may also have greater benefits at an earlier stage of disease progression when the brain is still quite healthy. The extent of such treatment benefits is generally moderate but, for some patients, it can be quite meaningful.
