Dementia: Educating to Empower

Join Jessica D. Speroff, M.S., CTRS, CDP for an engaging presentation on age-related changes caused by dementia. Many times, people are uncomfortable and unprepared to deal with cognitive changes that may happen to them or their friends later in life. Arming yourself with knowledge on the disease process and how individuals with dementia are perceiving the world around them paves the way to understanding and advocating for those living with cognitive impairment. This presentation will compare and contrast normal and abnormal aging, discuss real-life examples of how dementia impacts daily life, and offer suggestions on how friends and family can empower themselves and those living with dementia to lead full, meaningful lives.
