A Pandemic of Uncertainty

The Forgetting podcast: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s

Greg and David swing from serious to jocular as they check in on each other during the pandemic. The two friends talk about people’s need for certainty in their lives. Dementia creates a lot of uncertainty, and the pandemic and the country’s politics have made it worse.

Greg tells a story about trying to make his doctor laugh. And David gives some practical advice about nutrition and sleep. Greg also tells a touching story about a friend who fought Alzheimer’s-dementia, without even knowing it.

This episode was recorded November 24, 2020.

This is episode 8 of Season 2.
