Understanding Memory Loss -- Rudy Xavier
As we age our memories fade. Almost everyone over 50 knows someone who struggles with memory loss from mild forgetfulness to dementia.
This class will address those affected by memory loss as well as their supportive family and friends. The good news is that it is possible to learn to cope, or to help someone else learn to cope, with what is often a life-changing circumstance.
We will discuss current methods of understanding memory loss, the use of music as diagnosis and therapy, and other strategies and tactics for dealing with what can be the crushing burden of living with family or friends who can no longer remember.
Your intructor suggests that you read "Slow Dancing With a Stranger," by Meryl Comer. Available in paperback, hardcover, CD and Kindle versions. Attendees will receive an extensive bibliography, a DVD with pertinent videos (shown during the class), and summaries of class notes at no charge.
