Dementia Symptom Management – A Workshop for Caregivers
Friday, May 21st, 1:00PM – 2:00PM EST
This informative and supportive workshop will be presented by social workers I-Ting Cheng and Clivia Torres from SUNY Downstate’s Center for Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease.
After providing a brief overview of Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias, Ms. Cheng and Ms. Torres will explain how to recognize and prevent behavioral triggers, and offer tips on creating a positive environment for our loved ones with dementia. There will also be time left for Q&A so you can learn more about what is most important to you.
