New research could give families the gift of time when it comes to Alzheimer’s disease.
Doctors diagnosed David Sprenkel’s wife Nancy with Alzheimer’s 25 years ago, but thanks to scientific advancements and new medications at the time, the disease was slowed, he said.
“I had 20 or 25 years more of a better life together than I ever expected to have,” said David Sprenkel.
“Since I retired, we’ve just been able to do so many things together.”
Now, there’s new hope that researchers can delay the worst of the disease even more.
