Q & A replay: Living with dementia


Watch above: Most of us think of Alzheimer’s or dementia as an old person’s disease. But,  about 10 per cent of cases are now being diagnosed before people reach retirement age. It’s not just devastating for the person who has it, but their entire family. Jennifer Tryon has the story.

This week, Global National is airing a series of reports on living with dementia and how Canadians are adapting to a disease that affects so many — and at a much younger age than you may think.

Global National anchor Dawna Friesen, Senior Investigative Correspondent Jennifer Tryon and Mary Schulz, Education Director at the Alzheimer Society of Canada, took part in an online question and answer session.

Below is the replay of that Q & A session.

Feel free to submit any feedback on our series of the Q & A session by emailing with the subject line “Living with dementia.”
