This program is designed to help families and friends deal with caring for a loved one with dementia. Participants will walk out with a new understanding of the multilevel dynamics at play when a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia comes into play. We’ll discuss real-life situations, actions and reactions of all involved as days unfold into months and years. The overall goal of this presentation is to remove the fear associated with dementia and get people to realize the true joy which can be embraced when living in the moment.
