dc.descriptionProgress has been made in the discovery of how best to care for persons with dementia, but not in the cure or prevention of it. The statistics on the prevalence of Alzheimer's lend evidence to the assumption that special services must be made available to persons with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders (ADRD) and their families and friends. In addition to services, training for the care providers should be molded to the needs of the ADRD patients or clients. Persons with this illness exhibit many symptoms and behaviors that require special attention and care due to their unusual presentation. South Carolina will have to be innovative in its response to the increasing prevalence of ADRD among its citizens in the coming years in order to meet the needs of these people who fall prey to the disease.
