Dementia: How to Care, How to Cope, How to Thrive
Time & Location
About the Event
Most of us know someone who is living with dementia, if we’re not suffering its effects ourselves. Yet the topic is often shrouded in shame and secrecy due to dementia’s stigma and our own anxiety. This class, led by Barney Nelson and Shelly Edwards, will take a pragmatic “how to” approach to understanding dementia and caring for those who are affected by it, including the caregivers.
About the Instructors: Barney Nelson lives with Lewy Body Dementia - similar to Alzheimer’s, it’s a progressive and incurable neurodegenerative brain disease. Shelly Edwards is a professional educator on the care of people with dementia.
