Having lived through the challenges of Alzheimer's with my mother, I know first hand how confusing it can all be. If you're dealing with any level of dementia in your family, here's a wonderful seminar to help you understand what you're facing. That old saying about "knowledge being power", couldn't be more accurate when dealing with a loved one with any form of dementia.
Her presentation is sponsored by Arden Courts Memory Care Community, the Alzheimer’s Association Florida Gulf Coast Chapter, and The Friendship Centers.
In Venice it will be at the Venice Friendship Center, 2350 Scenic Drive, with registration at 9:30 a.m.,and the seminar from 10-11:30 a.m.
In Sarasota, registration is at 2:30 p.m. and the seminar is from 3- 4:30 p.m. at the Friendship Center for Healthy Aging’s Dwyer Room, 1900 Brother Geenen Way.
Understanding Alzheimer’s and dementia and why those living with these diseases act the way they do, can help untangle the mysteries behind these diseases, and help care partners effectively manage challenging behaviors.
Tam Cummings will discuss the differences between Alzheimer’s and other dementias, the seven stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia, common behavioral, emotional and physical changes that take place as dementia progresses, and helpful communication and caregiving techniques for each stage of the disease.
