FREE webinar, 9/22, 3pm: The Challenges of Mild Dementia in Older Adults
When people think of Alzheimer’s disease, they often picture someone who requires long-term care, has difficulty remembering names and faces, and is struggling with daily tasks.
And while those more severe symptoms are common as the disease progresses, most people start their journey with memory loss with less acute symptoms, either with a diagnosis of mild dementia or Mild Cognitive Impairment.
They still present unique challenges for caregivers, as their loved ones may not fully accept or understand their diagnosis and its implications, and therefore may be reluctant to make necessary changes to their day-to-day lives.
