SPEAKER: Janelle Taylor
We all want to be a good friend, but what does it look like to be a good friend to someone with dementia? In this presentation, Dr. Taylor will discuss research-based findings on individuals who remain actively involved with friends who have developed dementia.
Learn about the insights, wisdom and practical advice these individuals have shared about friendship and dementia—including what to say, or what not to say, when a friend shares the news of their diagnosis. Understand simple ways to be supportive along the way.
Discover communication tips for enhancing your friendship and shared activities that work well in the midst of memory loss.
