There are 3.5 to 4.5 million people in the United States who have some type of memory failure. The need for quality care for those individuals is beginning to overwhelm families, Doctors, and the individuals who suffer. Locking these people away is not the answer. Developing a way to reach each one on their own terms with the aid of their caregivers and Physicians is the key. Much patience and love must be part of the program.
