When people think of dementia, many times the first thing that comes to mind is Alzheimer’s disease.
In this live, interactive webinar, we will learn about the other types of dementia-related illnesses. We will look at three common types of dementias:
  1. Dementia with Lewy bodies
  2. Vascular dementia
  3. Frontotemporal dementia
For each dementia, we will learn about causes, risk factors, characteristics, symptomology, treatment, and how to cope. Lastly, we will discuss recommendations for family members and the impact of dementia on family dynamics.
Individuals will gain a greater understanding of the many different types of dementia, and how symptoms can change and what we can do to support individuals with dementia.
This workshop is fully interactive. Attendees may ask and answer questions throughout the presentation and participate in instructor-led discussions, case vignette discussions, and a Q&A session at the end.
Participants will be able to leave this training not only with a greater understanding dementia with Lewy bodies, vascular dementia, and frontotemporal dementia but the importance of high-quality dementia care.
