Lewy Body Dementia – Panel and “Sue’s Story” (Nov 13, Los Altos)

There’s a local program in Los Altos, CA next Wednesday, November 13th, at 6:30pm, that some of our Lewy body dementia (LBD) group members may be interested in attending.

Sue Berghoff has Lewy Body Dementia.  Her husband Chuck Berghoff is a member of the Brain Support Network LBD caregiver support group.  They are visiting libraries and senior centers in Santa Clara County to increase awareness and discuss caregiving issues. 

As part of the event, “Sue’s Story,” a documentary about Sue’s journey, will be shown.  (For more info on the documentary, see thesuesstoryproject.com.)  Following the movie, there will be a panel discussion with a Kaiser neurologist and Brain Support Network volunteer Denise Dagan.  Denise cared for her father with LBD.  She also cared for her mother with Alzheimer’s.

The program will be held at the Los Altos Library, 13 South San Antonio Rd., Los Altos, CA 94022.
