What is Dementia?

What is the difference between Alzheimer's disease and dementia? Dementia is an umbrella term that covers a range of cognitive conditions. Come learn about the most common types of dementia, how the symptoms present themselves and how diagnoses are made.



Communications and Behaviours

Alzheimer's disease affects many aspects of daily living including communication and behavior. By examining the ways in which caregivers and an individual living with dementia communicate, we can learn ways to have effective communication. Responsive behaviours can be an aspect of living with dementia and understanding the meaning behind the behaviours will help caregivers respond and create effective strategies.
