Coping With Your Loved One's Dementia -- Rudy Xavier
We are approaching a world-wide pandemic of age-related dementia. While Alzheimer's is the most prevalent, there are in fact, 70 kinds of dementia.
In the US, as the aging tip of the Baby Boomers (79 million) approach retirement and join the GI and Silent Generations (89 million persons) this one disease threatens to overwhelm the US healthcare system by 2025 (according to the Department of Health & Human Services).
This class will examine the issues of the two victims of dementia --- the patient and the caregiver. With the right information, practice, and help, it is possible to learn to cope or help someone else cope with this life-changing development.
We will discuss current methods of understanding, the use of music, & highly developed strategies & tactics to cope with the crushing burden of living with friends or family who have entered the dimming light of dementia.
