Overview of Alzheimer’s & Dementia
Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. It is the most common cause of dementia in older adults. While dementia is more common as people grow older, it is not a normal part of aging.
This recorded webinar describes an overview of dementia, the basics of disease progression and care delivery. It is appropriate for all staff, volunteers and family caregivers.
