A Person with Dementia (PWD) is suffering from a terminal brain disease. Understanding how memory works, knowing the type of dementia your loved one has, and the stage of the disease, allows caregivers to target conversation to the memories that continue to function. Using this skill allows for interactions with old memory and can lead families to new insights into their loved one’s younger life. Join us as Dr. Cummings discusses how you can improve communication with persons living with dementia.
