Join us to learn about dementia and what resources are available to help patients and families. Participants will learn to:
- Understand dementia and how it progresses from early to advanced stages.
- Develop strategies for making and maintaining meaningful connections with the person with dementia.
- Value the caregiver role and explore ways to reduce stress.
Maribeth Gallagher, psychiatric nurse practitioner and doctor of nursing practice, directs Hospice of the Valley’s Dementia Program, which has received national and
international awards for its innovative approaches to
dementia care. Dr. Gallagher’s commitment to improving dementia care was initially inspired by her own
experiences as a family caregiver, sharing the journey with her loved one with dementia from diagnosis to death.
