Understanding comes from knowing. Those providing care for someone with dementia have questions about how the illness might progress and how to provide the best care possible. This webinar will discuss different types of dementia, decisions that often need to be made, common medical concerns and available resources.
• Learn about being a caregiver for a person with dementia and things to watch for and plan for.
• Learn about medical complications people with dementia might have.
• Learn about resources available to caregivers as the person with dementia declines.
