Speaker: Jessica Girard, Social Worker, Pierce County Aging & Disability Resources

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. Jessica and colleague Kris Sawyers-Dowling have created a popular 6-part series targeting families beginning the journey with Alzheimer’s. Hear about their program and what they have learned along the way.
