Join us for an overview of understanding dementia-related behaviors, best practices for communication and what we can do to help manage these behaviors in a compassionate way. RSVP by Monday, January 20th: (402) 885-7007 or srussell@hillcresthealth.com.

The Alzheimer’s Association defines “dementia” as a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life – Alzheimer’s being the most common type of dementia. What does this really mean for your aging loved one and how might things change after a  diagnosis? Join Dr. Anna Fisher, Director of Education and Quality for Hillcrest Health Services, as she presents The Dimensions of Dementia. Guests will learn from a nationally-renowned dementia expert about dementia, best practices for communication and non-pharmacological approaches to care. Refreshments will be provided.
