Dementia Basics  

                This session will give participants a basic understanding of what dementia is as well as looking at some common characteristics of aging that are not dementia related. We will look more closely at the most common forms of dementia, which includes Alzheimer's Disease, and the characteristics of each.


Understanding Dementia Related Behaviors

                Often communication becomes more difficult as dementia progresses. This topic will help you understand common behaviors related to most dementias. You’ll learn how to interpret certain behaviors to try to understand what your loved one needs and why they are doing what they’re doing when they can no longer express themselves in words. Bring your questions and get some answers!
