Ed explains to Sharon the how and why they met. Ed was diagnosed with dementia/Alzheimer’s and he realized he wanted to be proactive and do something about it.
Nader mentions that Ed through a friend found out about AgeSong and it’s unique approach to what standard medicine calls dementia care, which AgeSong calls forgetfulness care. Ed liked what he was hearing and flew up from Orange County and met with Nader and they spoke together about what was going on with him.
