A Lunch & Learn for professionals with Dr. Maureen O’Connor, Associate Director of the BUADC Education Core
83% percent of the help provided to older adults in the U.S. comes from family members, friends or other unpaid caregivers. A dementia diagnosis can have a profound impact on the individual and on their family system as a whole. This discussion will help you understand this emotional journey and provide insight into how you can help.
You will learn about:
- The transition families go through once
a loved one is diagnosed with dementia.
- How to help families through this challenging transition.
- How to promote and support self-care
Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP by 2/21 to 978.685.2220 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
