Almost everyone over fifty knows someone who struggles with memory loss, whether mild forgetfulness or the fade into dementia. The good news is that it is possible to learn how to cope or to help someone else learn how to cope with this potentially life-changing decline.
This class will offer helpful advice to those affected by memory loss as well as to their supportive family and friends. You will learn about current understandings of memory loss, e.g., music as therapy.
You will also learn about current strategies and tactics for dealing with what can otherwise be the crushing burden of living with family members or friends who no longer can remember.
If you attend this course, you will gain a greater understanding of the science of memory loss and greater knowledge of practical coping techniques that you should find both effective and comforting. You will receive an extensive bibliography and summary of class notes.
For more than a decade Rudy Xavier was a certified Support Group Facilitator and public speaker for the Bay Area Alzheimers Association. He holds degrees in pre-med, psychology and computer science, and is experienced in the clinical psychology of aging.
