Details

Dementia is not a specific disease rather a group of conditions characterized by impairment of two brain functions, such as memory loss and judgment. The four most common causes of primary dementia are Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, vascular dementia and dementia with Lewy bodies. This program will define the different types, current interventions, and community resources to support caregivers and those in need of care.

Presenter: Kelsey Loushin, LICDC
