When the diagnosis is Alzheimer's disease or other dementia, grief doesn't wait for death. Grieving can begin before a formal diagnosis or in the doctor's office when patients and families receive confirmation of illness. Over a span of what may be a decade or more, multiple losses associated with dementia become a pervasive part of everyday life for millions of patients, families and friends. After the death, survivors' grief may be complicated by the nature of a lengthy disease process that has changed their relationship with the deceased.  Through a combination of candid, compelling, pre-recorded interviews and in-studio discussion, experts will discuss how to best help patients and families cope with the loss and grief associated with these progressive illnesses.

 

At the conclusion of the recorded portion of the presentation, there will be a 30 minute local panel discussion. 

 

3 contacts hours available at no additional cost.  3 CEU's available from HFA for an additional charge.
