What People Get Wrong About Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Popular Myths, Misconceptions & Outdated Ideas
Tuesday, April 20, 2021, 2:00 PM until 3:00 PM
Public Event of Interest
Join Paula Spencer Scott, author of "Surviving Alzheimer’s: Practical Tips and Soul-Saving Wisdom for Caregivers." A longtime caregiving advocate and health communications specialist, Scott’s articles have appeared in Parade, PBS Next Avenue, AARP, and many other outlets.
According to Scott, sometimes what we “think” we know about Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia simply isn’t true. And these persistent notions can work against us and those we love who have these conditions.
On this webinar, we will take apart some of the most common and enduring falsehoods, from “People with Alzheimer’s can’t learn anything new” to “There’s nothing you can do about it, so why find out?” Find out what the latest research says, and along the way, help fight stigma and fuel more effective care and a better quality of life.
