Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Discuss Alzheimer's with Larry King

Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller are in their late twenties. They are among the growing number of young people that are learning about the devastation and toll that Alzheimer's can take on a family.

Ms. Miller's mother was 55 years old when she was diagnosed. Two of Miller's grandparents had Alzheimer's disease. Her grandfather was also diagnosed in his fifties.

You don't read much about it, but millions of younger people are actively involved in Alzheimer's caregiving. Some come home from school and assume complete responsibility of the Alzheimer's patient so that the primary caregiver can work.

Like older adults, younger people can also feel like they are alone. This interview with Rogen and Miller should serve as an example to other younger people that in fact they are not alone. There are millions, like them, all over the country that are dealing with the difficult task of taking care of someone suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
