Alzheimer's Disease Video Journal Segment 6

December 2019 | Adult Down Syndrome Center - Video Journal

The video below is the sixth segment of our Alzheimer's Disease Video Journal, which consists of interviews with Colleen Buffington, a woman with Down syndrome who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in December 2016, and Bo Thompson, Colleen's sister and caregiver. Colleen and Bo have graciously agreed to share their journey with us. This segment was filmed in December 2019 and February 2020, approximately 3 years after Colleen was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. In this video, we share footage of Colleen and her best friend Kelly bowling as well as some of Bo's thoughts on Colleen and Kelly's friendship.
