Dementia is often equated with ‘memory problems.’ While this is an important component, there are many other changes that happen to the brain. These changes impact how the person living with dementia experiences the world around them. We will learn about changes that impact the sensory systems, such as vision and hearing, and strategies to provide support through these changes. This will include modifications to the home environment that may help. We will also discuss how changes to the brain may impact the person in other ways, such as impulse control and the ability to understand speech.

The link for this class will be sent one hour before the program is scheduled to begin. 

This class is two sessions October 4th and October 11th. When you sign up for the first session you are signed up for both.
