The Power of Human Connection In Dealing With People With A Dementia with Host Sheryl Hirsch-Kramer and Alzheimer's and Related Dementias Care Expert Carole Larkin MA, CMC, CAEd, DCP, QDCS, EICS

Alzheimer's Disease, the most common form of dementia, is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.  If you don't currently know someone with a Dementia, the odds are you soon will.  According to 2015 statistics published by the Alzheimer's Association, more than 15 million people find themselves providing unpaid care for people diagnosed with Alzheimer's or another form of Dementia.  Education is key to understanding our loved ones and providing them with the competent and compassionate care and human interaction they need and deserve to receive.  Alzheimer's and Related Dementias Care Expert Carole Larkin is our guide to understanding the importance of the human connection in dealing with people with a Dementia.  You're probably going to be speaking with someone with a Dementia.....maybe today, maybe ten years from now, maybe somewhere in between.  What you say and do and the way you say it and do it matters more than you may know today.  Why not learn how best to do this before it happens from an authority on the subject? We invite you to join Host Sheryl Hirsch-Kramer and her Guest Carole Larkin for an illuminating discussion.
