The Complexities of Dementia: Symptoms, Progression, Treatment, and Caregiver Resources

Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are conditions that advance over time, with medications available but no cure. Of the nearly 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease, 80% reside in their homes relying on family caregivers. For November as National Family Caregivers Month, this workshop recognizes the impact on caregivers’ mental health and well-being in addition to addressing these questions:

  • Do you know the major warning signs of dementia, the disease progression, and current treatments available?
  • Do you know what resources exist for caregivers?

Join us to learn more about the complexities of Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related conditions. Participants will learn:

  • The major warning signs of dementia and how dementia is different from other aging-related changes.
  • How to describe the progression of Alzheimer’s disease through its three major stages.
  • How to describe current treatments approved for use in people living with dementia.
  • Resources available to Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers.
  • The impact of caregiving on the health and wellbeing of the caregiver.

Presenters: From the Alzheimer’s Association Miami Valley Chapter – Rebecca Hall, MSW, LSW, Program Director; and Abby Edwards, MSW, LSW, Clinical Manager.
