December 9, 2020 @ 1:30 pm


This caregiver program for family members and friends of people with dementia will provide a brief overview of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and discuss some COVID-19 challenges that can be especially difficult for families living with dementia. On Wednesday, December 9 at 1:30 p.m. on Zoom, Maria Tomasetti, South Central CT Regional Director of the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter, will focus on strategies to engage in positive visits and interactions; explore tactics to discuss holiday celebrations that best suit the needs of the person diagnosed and the caregiver; provide options to minimize overstimulation during the holiday season; and address safety concerns…all within the context of our current COVID-19 world.
