By Linda Frost, Dementia & Caregiver Outreach Coordinator
Join us for the May session of our Dementia Series, hosted in partnership with the Willard Library! The goal of this series is to bring information to the community about dementia to help family members, friends, and caregivers as they care for their loved one with dementia.
The May class will focus on Mood & Behavior Changes in Your Loved One with Dementia and will take place on Wednesday, May 24 from 6:00pm – 7:30pm at the Willard Library.
What to Expect from the Dementia Support Class
During the class, we will discuss how and why the brain changes, as well as what your loved one may experience as a result of these changes, including alterations in vision, hearing, mood, and more. We will also provide tips for caregivers as they care for their loved one through these changes. We will also have time for discussion during the class where common challenging situations such as resistance to care, sundowning, and repeating questions can be discussed as a group.
You will leave the class with information, resources, and supportive connections to help you as you care for your loved one!
