Description

Many changes happen to our brains as we age.  What is normal brain health for most older adults?  At what age do the changes begin?  How do we know if there is something wrong like Alzheimer's disease?  Join us for this interactive seminar on understanding typical brain changes that happen to everyone.  This seminar will also cover symptoms that indicate a possible permanent or temporary dementia diagnosis and how to distinguish them from normal age-related brain health.

 

This course is suitable for both beginning and intermediate levels.  There is an introduction to dementia and an overview which is necessary and appropriate for beginners.  It also applies to intermediate levels expands upon the introductory level, focusing on the less common types of irreversible dementia that many geriatric social workers may have less familiarity with.
