Practical Legal & Financial Plans:
What are the legal and financial issues that may impact families and loved ones living with a dementia? How do you make decisions and put plans into place while honoring your loved one’s wishes? This presentation goes over everything from advanced directives and powers of attorney, to how to pay for long-term care, what is covered by Medicare and Medicaid, lots of local resources, plus much more.
Bring Your Mind Back with Music and Art and When ‘Everything is Fine, Isn’t:
The first program will explain how art and music can often be the best medicine for someone living with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, why art and music can have such a profound effect on all of our brains, and how to put a program of music and art “therapy” into practice in the life of a loved one living with a dementia. The second program discusses how to respond when a loved one does not acknowledge the memory loss symptoms that you and others are recognizing.
