Working and living with dementia is a growing problem as our population ages. People with dementia require more care and each year the number of people with dementia increases. To better care for those with dementia, it is important to understand the disease process and how the needs of those experiencing dementia change throughout the stages of the disease. We will look at the human brain and how it works to explain why people with dementia change over time and become more dependent on the caregiver knowing his or her history. This webinar will discuss different approaches to use when interacting with a person who has dementia.
