Event Description

August 23, 2013 Updated Aug 23, 2013 at 10:06 AM EDT

Presenter Martha Stettinius, author and dementia expert, will speak on the challenges of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’ or other dementia. Topics will include how to find support for yourself as a caregiver and how to advocate for your loved one as their needs change. Martha will also discuss how caring for someone with dementia need not be a “long good-bye” as it’s so often called, but can be a “long hello” when you learn to communicate with and enjoy the company of your loved one through the final stages of the disease.

Please call Caregiver Services to reserve your seat: 778-2411.
