U.S. News and World Report: Signs that it's time for memory care

The University of Cincinnati's Rhonna Shatz provided her expertise for a recent U.S. News and World Report article about signs that a person with dementia may need more advanced care.

Shatz, DO, adjunct associate professor, division director for behavioral neurology, and the Bob and Sandy Heimann Endowed Chair in Research and Education in Alzheimer’s Disease in the UC College of Medicine, said that people with dementia are often cared for by spouses or significant others.
