The Truth about Avoiding Dementia

Understandably, there is a lot of uncertainty and fear around the prospect of us or a loved one developing memory problems and what this will mean.

One of the most common questions tends to be, does aging mean at some point we are destined to lose our memory?

The goal of this month’s seminar is to debunk many of the longstanding myths associated with age related changes, and brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Some of the many questions the expert panelists address include:

  • how you might be able to avoid, reduce or delay dementia
  • warning signs and what to do
  • dementia-like symptoms that may be reversible
  • dementia and the effects on moving/transition
  • how to help yourself or a loved one with dementia
  • resources available in our community
