New task force to help military, veterans, civilians battle dementia
from Dayton Daily News
An Alzheimer's Association Military Task Force has been formed to improve services for local military personnel, veterans and government civilians who may be supporting a family member or personally struggle with dementia-related disorders. Based upon research on dementia-related disorders, there appears to be a relationship between dementia and post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. The new community effort also will focus on helping caregivers associated with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and those they care for who are suffering or may be more likely to suffer from Alzheimer's and dementia.
