Joseph Jebelli's interest in Alzheimer's research is personal. He recalls his grandfather's struggle with memory loss as he looks into the history of the illness and developments in the field. Thomas Judd's narration reflects that personal concern, keeping listeners interested through the tangles of study results and shifts in research budgets. Listeners will want to stay with the work until they get to the recent hopeful developments. Jebelli adds humanity to the story whenever possible, even taking a dementia test himself. He also takes listeners on a tour of a Swedish home for elderly dementia patients and describes patients' struggles with simple tasks. Everyone ages, and Jebelli makes the health of aging minds an intriguing and relevant topic. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2018]
