Presented by Heather McKay, PhD, OT/L. Heather is an Occupational Therapist, Dementia Care Specialist, and international Trainer/Speaker on topics related to dementia care and caregiver education.

Have you ever walked into a room, forgotten what you came there for, and feared the worst: “Is this dementia?” If you’re questioning your memory or interested in maintaining your brain health, you’re not alone! We’re all aging and have opportunities to care for our brains at every stage of life. Detecting a cognitive problem early could lead to a quick resolution, restore brainpower, or maintain brain function longer—all for the sake of living life to the fullest through old age.

After this program, you’ll be able to:

  • Distinguish between normal forgetfulness and a memory/thinking problem that does warrant alerting the doctor during your routine brain checkup.
  • Describe other conditions that mimic dementia and effective treatment approaches for each.
  • Identify three key essential components of a brain health program.
  • Explain the top 10 best brain exercises and strategies to grade up or down for your just right challenge.

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.
