Brain Support Network hosted a “Dementia and Alzheimer’s Caregiver Conference” in mid-November in Santa Rosa. A volunteer recorded the half-day conference and another volunteer created a YouTube playlist. You can find the playlist here:
In particular, I’d like to highlight these four presentations:
* “Caring for a Family Member with Lewy Body Dementia” – by longtime LBD group member Helen Medsger (13 minutes)
* “Coping with Behavior Change in Dementia” – by longtime BSN friend Laurie White, LCSW (14 minutes)
* “Importance of Estate Planning” – by attorney Steven Goldberg (9 minutes)
* “Parallels of Dementia and Improv” – by actor Mick Laugs (31 minutes)
I don’t list Dr. Ali Atri’s presentation as a highlight mostly because I’ve heard so many neurologist presentations on Alzheimer’s and dementia. But your ranking may be different!
