What are the typical behaviors? How do I manage them?
There’s no diagnosis like an Alzheimer’s or Dementia diagnosis. More and more families are facing the long road of caring for a loved one with dementia. There is a lot of uncertainty before the diagnosis and in the early stages after the diagnosis. Take a look at the questions and the answers in this 6-part series for families and individuals beginning the journey.
The schedule for sessions is:
- Sept 22 – “What is Dementia? What are the warning signs?”
- Sept 29 – “How does the disease progress? What should I expect?”
- Oct 6 – “How do I start the conversation? How do I cope with the shock?”
- Oct 13 – “What are the typical moods and behaviors? How do I manage them?”
- Oct 20 – “How do I pay for care? What are the legal things I should do?”
- Oct 27 – “Where can I turn for help? What are the resources I can rely on?”
Sessions are led by Kris Sawyers-Dowling and Jessica Girard, expert case managers with Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources, who specialize in providing practical help to individuals and families coping with memory loss. .
