Older adults have an increased risk of developing depression, however, depression is not a normal part of aging. With studies linking depression to dementia, it's no surprise that many of the same tactics can be used to treat both.
You may be concerned about early-onset dementia or know someone who experiencing it now. Studies show moving those needing memory care into communities catering to Alzheimer’s and dementia have better outcomes for a resident’s wellbeing. To gain some perspective when it’s time to move a loved one into a Memory Care community, we are proud to welcome back Teepa Snow as the speaker for our September 15, 2021 webinar.
September 2021 is the ten-year anniversary of World Alzheimer’s Month, the international campaign from Alzheimer's Disease International. For a decade, people from all around the world have formally organized to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and dementia, however advocacy for those affected by this disease has been in place much longer by organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association, founded in 1980.
Learning about the two terms and the difference between them is important and can empower individuals with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, their families, and their caregivers with necessary knowledge.
