The holidays offer the opportunity to reunite with seldom-seen relatives. Family gatherings often bring people together over traditional foods, activities and recollections of the past.

On this week’s episode of “Behind the Blue,” Parsons joins us to provide tips on the warning signs of dementia and what to do when you worry that grandma or grandpa might have Alzheimer's. She also gives advice on how to make the holidays less stressful for everyone when a family member has Alzheimer's.
