? Jenny Stanson is a 20-year-old college student who lives with her grandmother. She has noticed that her grandmother seems confused at times, forgets things she has told her, and is often rather short-tempered. This does not seem to be her usual manner and happens only infrequently, but Jenny is concerned. Someone stated her grandmother might be suffering from early Alzheimer’s disease. She wants to know what she should do about this. She also wants more information about Alzheimer’s disease. How can you help her? What resources might be helpful?
