Join us to better understand dementia and cognitive aging, and how we can practice preventive approaches.
As our aging population continues to grow, health care providers must be prepared to address the prevalent health issues that seniors may experience like dementia and late-life depression. Elderly patients with memory disorders and behavioral health conditions often present unique and complex challenges, requiring integrated care delivered by specialized and trained professionals.
Dr. Christina Burrows will provide an update on successful cognitive aging, warning signs of dementia, and preventive approaches for dementia and cognitive decline.
