Many of us were fascinated by the movie “The curious case of Benjamin Button” and were left feeling somewhat sentimental afterwards. Interestingly, the path of Benjamin Button was one that does rather resemble that of a person suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). However, AD does not leave one feeling somewhat sentimental and touched. It is a draining, stressful illness – for those suffering from it, as well as their caretakers. There is often quite some confusion about what defines normal aging, dementia, and AD.
