Alzheimer's Talks - December 2017
Dec 5 17
The guest on UsAgainstAlzheimer’s December Alzheimer’s Talks was Lakelyn Hogan, a gerontologist and caregiver advocate at Home Instead, which provides in-home elder care services including Alzheimer's/dementia care, respite care and senior companionship. The holidays are a time to get together and celebrate with family—but it can be challenging when someone you love has Alzheimer’s disease. It can also raise questions or concerns when you notice changes in an older relative. Lakelyn spoke with UsAgainstAlzheimer’s to share some terrific, practical suggestions to make the holidays more enjoyable for someone with Alzheimer’s and for the whole family, as well as potential Alzheimer’s/dementia signs to watch for when visiting an older relative.
