There’s no question that memory loss is a family affair. Lewy Body Dementia many times is unrecognized and underdiagnosed, and finding ways to make this challenge more manageable is essential to improve the quality of life for all involved. Join us for this interactive presentation to increase your knowledge about Lewy Body Dementia and better understand signs and treatment.
Leandra will not only help us to understand the signs and potential treatment of this disease, but also provide an opportunity for caregivers and families to learn what happens when the brain changes and how to respond in compassionate, thoughtful ways. The presentation is an interactive experience and questions are encouraged.
