Understanding the Timeline of Dementia
November 9, 2021 | 5:30 p.m.
Presented by Heather McKay, PhD, OT/L; Dr. Heather McKay is an occupational therapist, dementia care specialist and international trainer/speaker on topics related to dementia care and caregiver education
Family caregivers are supporting people living with dementia for a decade or longer. Recognizing changes throughout this long disease can feel like detective work. Dr. Heather McKay, will present a webinar focused on the five stages of dementia progression and strategies that work to support people in every stage.
Participants will learn how to adapt their help to match the person’s changing needs and foster more positive interactions throughout disease progression. Dealing with dementia is challenging, but when families and their myriad helpers understand the timeline and cooperate to redesign plans as the person’s needs change, they can provide the right support at the right time—improving life for the person living with dementia and each other.
