It is estimated that one out of six women and one out of ten men older than age 55 will develop dementia. Today, there are 5 million older adults who have been diagnosed with dementia, and that number is growing. While the diagnosis is a result of a physician’s assessment, often the care falls to a paid or unpaid caregiver, which can be overwhelming. Understanding the unique behaviors associated with dementia and gaining tips to help manage the behaviors of loved ones/patients can play a huge role in a caregiver’s success.

This webinar also will identify signs of caregiver burnout, to help alert caregivers of the risks.
