Presented by Heather McKay, PhD, OT/L; Dr. Heather McKay is an occupational therapist, dementia care specialist and international trainer/speaker on topics related to dementia care and caregiver education

Family caregivers are supporting people living with dementia for a decade or longer. Recognizing changes throughout this long disease can feel like detective work. Dr. Heather McKay, will present a webinar focused on the five stages of dementia progression and strategies that work to support people in every stage.

Participants will learn how to adapt their help to match the person’s changing needs and foster more positive interactions throughout disease progression. Dealing with dementia is challenging, but when families and their myriad helpers understand the timeline and cooperate to redesign plans as the person’s needs change, they can provide the right support at the right time—improving life for the person living with dementia and each other.

Honoring a True Hero

Grandpa is a decorated WWII vethe’d been a POW. He moved to Artis at the age of 101. The team at Artis said they wanted to plan something special to honor and welcome him, so they reached out to the VA. We were astonished on move-in day to be greeted by three generals, 25 uniformed soldiers, two town selectmen, two state representatives and five local veterans! The generals each gave Grandpa a special commemorative coin. He was moved beyond words. I don’t know how Artis did it, I’m just in awe they did. They gave this proud old soldier the tribute of a lifetime.
