Laura Mosqueda, M.D., talks with Bobbi and Mike about geriatric medicine, elder abuse, and caregiving for the elderly and underserved.

“We tend to focus on the memory issue but really, if somebody only has a memory problem, that's amnesia or amnestic syndrome, which is really, really rare. Whereas dementia is really common, so it's always memory and something else. The issue is: What is that something else?” Laura says.
