The dementia-care specialist with the Aging and Disability Resource Center of the Lakeshore will offer a free, two-part educational series on dementia: currently the sixth-leading cause of death in the nation, with Alzheimer’s being the most common cause of dementia among older adults. This series will highlight resources available to those caring for loved ones who have dementia.
Dementia 101 will be offered virtually March 18, 1-2 pm, and will focus on dementia basics: the differences between what’s considered “normal aging cognitive decline” and more serious diseases that cause dementia.
Dementia 201 will be offered virtually April 6, 1-2 pm, to discuss the behavioral symptoms of dementia, provide caregivers with positive ways to intervene as they care for their loved ones and look at the physiological changes in the brain and what the disease progression might look like. To register, call the ADRC of the Lakeshore at 877.416.7083.
