 Family caregivers of people with dementia have one of the most difficult and challenging journeys, one that often ends in burnout.

     Event: Conversations about Dementia
Location: Aegis of Shoreline, 14900 1st Ave. NE, Shoreline, WA 98155
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

When someone is showing signs of dementia, it’s time to talk. The Alzheimer’s Association Conversations about Dementia program is designed to help you talk with your family about some challenging and often uncomfortable topics around Alzheimer’s and dementia. Some of the most difficult conversations to have are about: going to the doctor to get a diagnosis or medical care, deciding when it is necessary to stop driving, and making plans for managing finances and legal documents to be sure the person’s wishes are carried out and the costs of future care are covered. Join us and learn some tips for breaking the ice and setting the stage for meaningful and productive conversations about dementia.

Pre-registration is required. To register or to learn more call 206.367.6700.

Please note: this presentation is not appropriate for the person with memory loss.
