Alzheimer’s Support Workshop

November 17, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Alzheimers Support Workshop Logo

One in nine Americans over 65 has Alzheimer's disease. With the aging or our population, it is expected that by 2050 16 million Americans will have Alzheimer's. In addition, there are many forms of dementia that display similar symptoms. While advances have been made in public education, dementia is still a poorly understood condition.

Here's what you'll learn at this workshop:
1. The definitions of Alzheimer's Disease and dementia, and why dementia has become "The disease of our time."
2. The signs and behaviors that suggest someone may be entering dementia.
3. The "deficits" caused by dementia: loss of peripheral vision, degradation of hearing ability and comprehension, loss of olfactory function, loss of manual dexterity.  Dementia is much more than memory loss.
4. The role of compassion, patience, and understanding in care for an individual living with dementia.  They are not giving you a hard time.  They are having a hard time!
5. At present, there is no remediation or cure.  Dementia is progressive, irreversible, and terminal.
6. Trish Kallenbach will discuss supporting Alzheimer's disease sufferer's with supplements.
