Understanding A Dementia Diagnosis at Demere Center for Living
October 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
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?
• Constantly asks to go home when they are home?
• Argues over what seems so obvious?
• 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, Associate Professor of Nursing 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.
While this is a free class, we do ask for and accept donations. As well, we ask that you please register in advance by calling Jill at 912.629.1331 or by e-mailing
