Understanding a Diagnosis of Dementia
June 14, 2018 at 2:00pm-3:00pm

This session is a supportive and safe environment where you can openly share your concerns and questions about an Alzheimer's or dementia diagnosis. Caregivers can learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, discuss current treatments and other strategies for care from group facilitators and other caregivers. Please join us for this hour-long session hosted by the UT Health School of Nursing's Caring for the Caregiver Program.

Parking and refreshments are provided. Please register as soon as possible, as space is limited. These classes are for caregivers.

NEW! If you'd like to bring your loved one with memory issues along while you attend class, we now offer a co-occurring engagement activity in which they can work with a doctor of occupational therapy on an activity that interests them. Please call or email ahead of time to arrange for an engagement activity for your loved one masoud@uthscsa.edu or (210) 450-8487.
