PROGRAM BY PHONE: TALKING TO YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT DEMENTIA: DIAGNOSIS & FOLLOW-UP
Visiting the doctor can be intimidating and even frightening when you are concerned about Alzheimer’s. This is true for an initial diagnosis and for follow-up visits. Join us as we learn from a geriatrician about the process of diagnosing Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and how you can effectively partner with your doctor as you navigate these tricky waters. Presented by Dr. Daniel Bateman.
This program will take place on Tuesday, September 11th from 1:00-2:00pm EST/12:00-1:00PM CST or recorded to listen to at a later time.

Family Caregiver Workshop
This program is specialized for family caregivers and will offer information about Alzheimer’s disease and caregiving and will also provide an opportunity to reflect, regenerate, and gain a new perspective on your caregiving issues.

This training is designed specifically for family caregivers and is therefore not open to those who are professional caregivers.
