DEMENTIA: Mario Garrett, Care Over Cure
Show Notes

This episode continues our conversation with gerontologist and psychologist Mario Garrett. In this part of the discussion Mario describes his priority to put care over cure. He argues that American society puts far too much emphasis on searching for a cure to Alzheimer's and much too like time, energy and money into actually addressing the needs of people who suffer from dementia and their caregivers.
