Q&A with the Doctor: Care Strategies for Success with Dementia
May 11, 2021 | 12:30 p.m.
Presented by Dr. Sherrie All, PhD, International Speaker, Writer, Licensed Clinical Neuro-Rehabilitation Psychologist, Brain Health Expert and Director of the Chicago Center for Cognitive Wellness
Caring for a person with dementia requires learning and practicing a host of new skills. Some skills we develop implicitly and some need to be taught. When care partners know more about how the brain works (or doesn’t work in dementia) they can better navigate the communication and care challenges unique to dementia care. Dr. Sherrie All will share with you her neuroscience-informed, best-practices for improving your communication and care strategies to help you be more successful day-to-day.
Dr. All’s new book is available for pre-order now: The Neuroscience of Memory: Seven Skills to Optimize Your Brain Power, Improve Memory, and Stay Sharp at Any Age
