Arm Yourself with Knowledge at Symposium on Dementia
When you are a caregiver to someone with dementia, you need to be a bit of a detective as well as possess some of the skills of a nurse, social worker and housekeeper.
It should be no surprise that AARP is actively involved in the fight against dementia-related illnesses. A new opportunity to fight these diseases is now available here in Maryland.
Providing care for a family member with dementia can be challenging. Onset and worsening of symptoms can cause caregivers to feel stress and frustration, leading to an inability to cope. Listening to music is a coping tool used by many caregivers challenged by caregiver stress. If you are interested in learning about music interventions and other ways to cope with caregiver stress, please read on to find out about an opportunity to participate in an upcoming half-day event.
