NEW! Dementia 101
1 session, 3 hours
Dementia 101 will provide a basic understanding of dementia. This class will define the term and discuss the difference between normal aging and dementia. We will also investigate the difference between reversible and irreversible forms of dementia and look at the risk factors. Then we’ll discuss the process for diagnosing dementias and explore the symptoms of various forms of dementia.
