Dementia Care: Seeing it from the Other Side | American Society on Aging

Dementia Care: Seeing it from the Other Side | American Society on Aging | Health and Ageing | Scoop.it

This FREE web seminar will present health care providers with some of the latest information available in understanding dementia, with a goal of working more effectively with people living with the condition and their caregivers.

 

Some of the most common questions regarding dementia will be addressed, including “How do you tell the difference between normal aging and dementia?”, “What is the difference between dementia and Alzheimer’s disease?”, “Why should I worry about getting it identified or diagnosed?”, and “Why are they doing this?”

 

Practical and valuable answers to these questions will be outlined, with a goal of seeing things differently and providing better care and support to those you serve.
