Understanding a Dementia Diagnosis
See our Caregiver Calendar for upcoming class dates and locations
Being a caregiver for someone with a memory issue or a dementia diagnosis presents its own unique share of challenges both mentally and physically.
Do you often ask yourself why your loved one:
- Forgets simple things but seems so “normal” at other times?
- Argues over what seems so obvious?
- Constantly asks to go home when they are home?
- Follows you around and asks so many questions?
Why do they give you a hard time when you are only trying to care for them?
Our Understanding A Dementia Diagnosis class instructor Dr. Debra Hagerty DNP, RN, NHA, FACDONA, assistant professor at GA Southern University Armstrong campus, explores the probable progression, treatment, and prognosis of dementia. Additional time will be allotted for questions, discussions, support and learning from Dr. Hagerty and caregivers who understand the stress of your situation.
If you have attended this unique class in the past but still have questions or are perhaps at a new stage with your loved one, you are more than welcome to attend as often as you feel necessary. We look forward to having you join us!
While this is a free class, we do ask for and accept donations. Please register in advance by calling 912.629.1331 or by e-mailing Jill at JCostello@EdelCaregiverInstitute.org with your name and contact information. Thank you.
