About the Event
Whether you’re a patient or a caregiver, dementia takes everything from a person, and tends to do so very slowly. The effects are not just physical, but psychological and emotional and spiritual and just about every way you can think of. Losing function is one thing, but losing yourself is something importantly different. Due to the fact that dementia plays out over many years, everyone involved needs to adapt again and again. In this session we’ll review the natural course of dementia so you know what to expect, think about ways to be supportive over time, and how to find help for the helpers.
