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:

  1. The transition families go through once
    a loved one is diagnosed with dementia. 
  2. How to help families through this challenging transition.
  3. How to promote and support self-care
    for caregivers.

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP by 2/21 to 978.685.2220 or bhaydon@methuenvillage.com.
