Living with Dementia–Session 4 (Altoona)
October 17, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Topic: Planning for the Future with Dementia.
During the early stages of a dementia diagnosis, it may be difficult to consider plans and options. Participants in this session will learn why it’s important to have conversations as early as possible and how to find help. Presenters will provide ideas for creating a dementia-friendly environment in the home and other settings as well as ideas for finding a dementia care facility or support setting that best matches needs, including a “questions to ask” guide and other tools. Panelists joining the conversation will offer resources to assist with preserving independence throughout all stages of care, maximizing safety and mobility, creating a dementia-friendly environment in the home and other settings, accessing services in your community, and more. Advance registration is required for info sessions and Memory Café.
