THE TRUTH ABOUT DE­MEN­TIA

THURS­DAY, 9pm, BBC1

An­gela Rip­pon nursed her mother in the years be­fore her death, so the pre­sen­ter has in­sight into what might be­come of her should she also be di­ag­nosed with Alzheimer’s.

This in­ves­ti­ga­tion is per­sonal, and it is coura­geous of her to put her­self through a bat­tery of tests know­ing that the re­sults will be broad­cast.

Re­gard­less, she learns how best to take care of her brain and finds that some mice in Amer­ica might hold at least part of the an­swer.

She also vis­its peo­ple liv­ing with de­men­tia on a daily ba­sis.
