Isthmus on WORT: My dad's agonizing final year with dementia

My family's experience with dementia suggests our facilities and legal system are not keeping pace with the needs. In the coming years, there will be more people like my dad, who can no longer be at home and who need a place to comfortably decline, not be treated like criminals.

Isthmus contributor Catherine Capellaro reported on her father's end-of-life struggle with dementia in the March 7 issue, and discussed her story with WORT producer Dylan Brogan on the March 6 edition of In Our Backyard.

Listen to the interview.
