June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month. As we age, many of become, many of us become concerned about if and how we or a loved one may be affected by the aging brain.
The goal of this month’s seminar is to help debunk many of the longstanding myths associated with age related changes, getting older, and brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Our expert panelists will address questions such as:
- Which of us will lose our memory as we age?
- Do thinking and reasoning eventually slow down?
- What are the signs of a healthy or unhealthy brain?
- Is there anything I can do to avoid having dementia?
And how to help yourself or a loved one with dementia.
How do dementia symptoms impact aging-in-place, or selling the family home and making a transitional move? We’ll discuss some of the options that couples and families have worked through to address, and find out what services are available to help.
A diagnosis of dementia or increasing problems with memory loss often results in a flurry of emotions, multiple complex questions, and the making of both short and long term plans. One of the biggest questions tends to be how long can (or should) I live at home? Couples struggle to agree on whether to remain in place or relocate, when and who to hire for support, and how to have conversations with others about their plans. Gain important insights into these questions and more from this panel of professionals and laypersons.
These are just a few of the questions to be addressed in the upcoming seminar on brain health and the aging brain…and Downsizing with Dementia.
